Thanks to the generosity of our member stations and their support of our NCSA program, the VAB has been able to provide nearly a million dollars in college scholarships to students who pursue broadcasting and communications majors. We’re proud of the fact that the VAB has, by a more than two-to-one margin, the largest scholarship endowment at Lyndon State College. We also provide funding to large VAB scholarship endowments at Champlain College, Castleton University and to Husson University’s New England School of Communications.
Now we’re expanding our scholarship efforts to try to directly help employees of Vermont radio and television stations, and their families, with the ever-growing cost of education. If you work for a Vermont station and you have a family member planning to attend a college or university, let them know they can apply for a new VAB scholarship through VSAC, the Vermont Student Assistance Corporation.
Eligible students can apply for a scholarship worth up to $1250 towards their expenses at any accredited college or university in the country. For this scholarship, the applicant does not have to be planning on majoring in broadcasting or communications.
All the information about our new scholarship opportunity is included in the new VSAC Scholarship booklet. The VAB scholarship information is on page 32 of the new booklet.
Good luck to all applicants!
