Arkansas Broadcasters Association Ted Rand Memorial Scholarship
Each year the Arkansas Broadcasters Association awards its Ted Rand Memorial Broadcasting Scholarship to a selected Arkansas high school senior who plans to major any broadcast emphasis at Arkansas State University. The scholarship covers tuition expenses for the fall semester and is renewable to cover tuition expenses the following spring semester.
Applications for the scholarship are taken each spring. The winner is selected on the basis of his/her academic record and class standing, standardized test scores, school and community activities, recommendation by the counselor or principal, and expressed interest in broadcasting as a career. Finalists are asked to submit an audition tape recording.
Any Arkansas high school senior interested in applying for the scholarship should contact his/her local radio or TV station or high school guidance counselor in the spring, or write to the Chairman of the Department of Media at A-State. Only students in Arkansas high schools are eligible to apply for the ABA's Ted Rand Broadcasting Scholarship.
