Nebraska Broadcasters Association Foundation awards $10,000 in Scholarships to four Nebraska University Students

The Nebraska Broadcasters Association Foundation (NBAF) has awarded $10,000.00 in scholarships to four students who are currently attending Nebraska universities with aspirations to work in broadcasting upon their graduation.  The following students have been awarded a NBAF scholarship for the 2018-2019 school year:

William Bauer, a junior at University of Nebraska – Lincoln pursuing a dual major in major in Broadcasting and Sports Media and Communication; Evan Jones, a senior at University of Nebraska – Kearney pursuing a dual major in Sports Communication and Sports Management; Emily Morrow, a sophomore at University of Nebraska – Lincoln pursuing a dual major in Broadcasting and Advertising/Public Relations, and Zach Penrice, a senior at University of Nebraska – Lincoln pursuing a dual major in Broadcasting and Journalism.  

Current NBA Board Chairperson Ariel Roblin, President/General Manager of KETV, Omaha, said:  “The Nebraska Broadcasters Association is proud to support these fine students.  Their passion, commitment, and dedication to values and mission of the free press gives us great confidence in the future of Broadcast Journalism.”

The NBAF offers scholarships to assist students enrolled in radio and/or television broadcasting or broadcast journalism educational programs at colleges, universities or technical colleges in Nebraska.  Students meeting our requirements were encouraged to submit their application, with a panel of NBA board members reviewing each applicant’s materials.  The minimum scholarship awarded is $2,000.00.  The number of scholarships and total dollar amount awarded each year is at the discretion of the NBA Foundation Board of Directors based on application quality and quantity.  More than $300,000 in college scholarships have been awarded by the NBA and NBAF since the NBA first began awarding college scholarships in 1977.
