ISBA Scholarship Program

For Idaho Students Desiring a Career in Broadcasting

http://bestinbroadcasting.com/i5ba2/images/stories/tv_reporter_1.pngThe Idaho State Broadcasters Association, founded in 1950, is organized to further the interests of broadcasters in Idaho. Professional enrichment of the membership is one of the principles of ISBA and, in that context, the encouragement of students considering broadcasting as a career is an important ISBA mission.

 

Each year ISBA funds at least two $1,000 general scholarships and the Wayne C. Cornils Memorial Scholarship for less advantaged students. We encourage applications from students attending Idaho schools and preparing for a career in broadcasting. Such careers could include: Business Administration, Sales, Journalism, Engineering. We encourage applications from a broad and diverse student population.
