WBA Foundation Educational Support Grant Program Taking Applications Now!

In 2010, the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association Foundation Board of Directors created the Educational Support Grant Program. This program awards up to $10,000 annually to assist non-profit college and technical school broadcast education programs to acquire equipment, hardware, software, and/or other teaching materials necessary to conduct broadcast education programs and promote careers in broadcasting.

We invite communications educators to submit grant proposals for 2016 and we encourage educators to spread the word about the WBA Foundation’s Educational Support Grant Program.

For 2015, the WBA Foundation Board approved five grants totaling $10,607. The program has generated excellent response. Since the inception of the program, the WBA Foundation Board has issued $163,358 in Educational Support Grants.
