This high school senior scholarship is a post-secondary partial scholarship program for children of employees of Kentucky radio and television stations. KBA will annually award fourteen (14) scholarships of fifteen hundred dollars ($1,500) each to qualified sons and daughters of employees of Kentucky broadcast stations.

  • The student must attend full-time a college, university, vocational school, institute of technology, or academy that awards academic degrees or professional certifications.

  • There is no minimum GPA requirement to apply. However, preference will be shown to students who demonstrate good scholastic ability.
