Apply for a $1,300 INBA Scholarship today!

INBA is offering up to four $1300 scholarships this year. The money can be used toward the cost of books, tuition or other expenses to be incurred while enrolled as a full-time student or to cover living expenses during an internship at a radio or television station serving an Illinois market.

Based on an application and personal interview, the INBA Honors and Awards Committee will award the scholarships to post high school students who have demonstrated an interest and potential in broadcast news. We will also consider financial need and academic performance.

All scholarship applicants must be a member of the INBA. You can join the organization by clicking here. Student membership dues are $20.

The postmark deadline for applications is March 11, 2009. Finalists must be interviewed on Friday, April 24th at the Spring 09 INBA Convention at the I Hotel in Champaign, Illinois. Scholarship winners will be invited to stay through the convention as our guests for the weekend. Other semi-finalists are encouraged to stay for the convention but at their own expense.

Applications are available for download as a MS Word document or Adobe PDF.
