College Completion Grant

Got your degree? Congratulations!

Feel like you need a little more training to confidently start your career in broadcasting?


That’s why we’re offering a $3,000 grant to bachelor’s degree recipients who complete their education at any of our locations.

Many programs don’t offer the familiarity with the equipment, nor the actual experience performing the tasks you’ll do on the job. We can help with that. In fact, we’re going to reward you for recognizing that a bachelor’s degree alone may not be enough to get you in the door of this competitive field.

Besides, how much better would it be to confidently say, “Sure, I’ve done newscasts”, or “Yes, I’ve produced commercials. Have you seen my demo?”

Let us help you be the best person for the job on the day you start working in broadcasting!
