NATAS Mid-America's Foundation provides scholarships to deserving high school and college students planning to major in journalism, broadcast television, television production and communications. Our mission is to reward academic excellence by helping bring the most talented new people into our industry.
Legacy giving to NATAS Mid-America's Foundation can include naming and endowment opportunities, as well as charitable trusts, real estate, life insurance or 401K beneficiary designations. Generous one-time or sustaining gifts support a new generation of driven television professionals who are inspired by the same ideals that brought our chapter's current members into the business.Your generosity funds financial aid that makes the difference! All contributions to our 501(c)(3) foundation can be tax-deductible.
The Walter Cronkite Scholarship is open to broadcast journalism applicants, while our new Creative Arts Scholarship is for those pursuing TV careers outside the newsroom. College undergraduates, as well as high school seniors in a school in the Mid-America region who have an interest in media studies and have been accepted at a college as a media, journalism, or mass communication major are eligible to apply.
We are also pleased to offer a new continuing education grant for television professionals looking to re-skill and enhance their talents.
