The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) is honoring legendary broadcasters Mike Wallace and Jim McKay by awarding scholarships in their names to college-bound students aspiring to careers in television.
The $10,000 awards are granted to outstanding high school seniors who intend to follow communications-related baccalaureate degrees in pursuit of a career in any aspect of the television industry.
The Scholarships are administered and judged by the Trustees of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences who, with its regional chapters, view student applications and creative works. Once the process is completed, the NATAS Scholarship Committee meets in New York City to review their determinations and make final selections in April, 2014. Each scholarship will be awarded to a college-bound applicant who demonstrates exceptional talent as a creator of video programming as well as outstanding academic achievement and potential for success in a highly competitive profession.
The application will require:
Your contact information
Your current GPA and College Board scores (SAT or ACT)
Examples of recent creative works, including links to videos (if available) hosted on a third-party service such as YouTube or Vimeo
Examples of recent field or work experience and school activities participated in
