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.
