NATAS FOUNDATION EXPANDS NATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

High School Seniors – Apply at https://emmyonline.org/scholarship – Deadline March 16

The awards include a new $40,000 Trustees’ Scholarship and two $10,000 scholarships honoring legendary broadcasters Mike Wallace and Jim McKay.  The funds are granted to outstanding high school seniors who intend to pursue a career in any aspect of the television industry.  “There is no better way to honor the Emmy® Award winning excellence of broadcasting luminaries past than to recognize and foster the excellence of television’s future,” said NATAS Foundation Vice President Adam Sharp, himself a 1996 scholarship winner.  “The excellence displayed over the last few years has raised the standards of the scholarship program to incredible new heights.”  This is the third year of the Mike Wallace Memorial Scholarship, funded by a five-year grant from CBS News in honor of longtime correspondent Mike Wallace (1918-2012) and presented each year at the News & Documentary Emmy® Awards. The Jim McKay Memorial Scholarship, now in its sixth year, honors sportscaster Jim McKay (1921-2008) and was established in 2009 by the HBO, CBS, NBC, ABC and FOX networks.  It is presented at the Sports Emmy® Awards each May.  The $40,000 Trustees’ Scholarship was reestablished by the NATAS Board of Trustees to recognize a standout student achievement in the electronic media arts of the last year.  The recipient will be selected from the applicants who distinguish themselves in the 2015 McKay/Wallace competitions or who were honored with a regional chapter scholarship in 2014 and nominated for further consideration by their chapter.  The online application for the McKay and Wallace scholarships is available at https://emmyonline.org/scholarship, with a deadline for submissions of 5 pm EST on Monday, March 16, 2015.  NATAS Trustees and officials will review applications and creative works, and the National Scholarship Committee will make its final selections in April.
