General Information:

This is the 26th year for the Kentucky Broadcasters Association (KBA) Harry Barfield Scholarship Awards Program. This spring, the KBA will award up to four (4) college and university students across Kentucky a $2,500 scholarship award for the 2017-18 academic year.

Policy, Guidelines, and Eligibility:

The scholarship application process is open to college and university students across the Commonwealth who attend institutions in Kentucky and whose primary residence is in Kentucky, and who are majoring in broadcasting/communications and have demonstrated a sincere interest in pursuing a career in broadcasting. A grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) is desired, although exceptional extracurricular activities and the faculty recommendation are also considered in the evaluation process. Preference will be given to rising juniors (current sophomores).

The scholarship is renewable for a second year, provided criteria continue to be met and the student remains in good academic standing at his or her institution.
