Intent on forging a career in television? If so, it may interest you to know that The Foundation of The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, along with its varying chapters, is currently on the path to granting over $200,000 in scholarships to students on their way to college, intent on making a living in the wonderful and exciting world of television!
Funds are granted to the most exceptional high school seniors whose ultimate goal is to work in any facet of the television industry. Nationally awarded scholarships include, first and foremost, a new $40,000 Trustees Scholarship and two $10,000 scholarships commemorating renowned and celebrated newscaster Mike Wallace and the equally noted sports journalist Jim McKay.
The success evinced by the scholarship program has made itself especially evident over the last few years and as a result, has raised its own bar for excellence to new pinnacles! As Adam Sharp Foundation Vice President himself said in a 1996 interview, “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 future!”
So onwards and upwards to our future television legends as the application deadline has been extended until March 16.
