Scholarship Value: $2,000
Awards Available: 8
Award Deadline: May 1, 2024

By endorsing and supporting quality education, the members of the Kansas Association of Broadcasters (KAB) believe they are helping to guarantee the future quality of broadcasting in Kansas. Toward that goal, the KAB has established a scholarship fund to aid in the higher education of promising students.

The purpose of the scholarship fund is: To support potential and commitment in promising future broadcasters. To encourage a high standard of professionalism in the industry. To foster a strong relationship between higher education and the profession. To promote a greater understanding of journalistic ethics and societal responsibility of broadcasters.

The Scholarship

The KAB will make available up to $20,000 annually in scholarship awards (for tuition and books). Applicants determined to be the best candidates will receive a scholarship award without regard to their enrollment in a four-year or two-year college.

The spring installment is contingent on the student continuing to meet the scholarship criteria.
