Four scholarships of $2,500 each are available to students who are currently majoring in broadcasting or communications at a college or university in Kentucky. The scholarships are awarded through a competitive application process which includes academic achievement, the recommendation of a faculty member, and extracurricular activities. Since the scholarship awards are renewable for a second year provided recipients continue to meet specified criteria, priority consideration will be given to students who are rising juniors.
The scholarship is named in honor of Harry Barfield, the late chairman of the Kentucky Broadcasters Association and manager of WLEX-TV in Lexington.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: MAY 1, 2021
