The NBAF offers scholarships to assist students enrolled in radio and/or television broadcasting or broadcast journalism educational programs at designated colleges, universities or technical colleges in Nebraska. Students meeting our requirements were encouraged to apply, with a panel of NBA board members reviewing each application. The minimum scholarship awarded is $2,500.00.

 

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.
