With the growing concern surrounding the FCC’s EEO Rules, the MAB Foundation has created an opportunity to assist MAB member stations in meeting these requirements. The following is a brief description of an exciting program that will give your station an easy and affordable avenue to gain possible option A points and encourage the future of the broadcast work force at the same time.

How the MAB Foundation Station Scholarship Program works

The MAB Foundation Station Scholarship Program is designed to allow individual member stations an opportunity to support one qualified college student interested in broadcasting as a career through an educational scholarship. The station will choose the scholarship winner among pre-qualified candidates and stations may also qualify for EEO credit through their participation. The MAB Foundation will act as the coordinator by helping to match participants with students from participating schools.

The cost to participate in this program is $1,250 per student, per year, with $1,000 to the student and $250 to the MAB Foundation for administrative costs. Organizations may participate in more than one scholarship.

We hope you will take advantage of this program offered by the MAB Foundation. It is available to you to assist your station in EEO requirements as well as to help preserve and advance the broadcast industry in Michigan.
