National Fellowships

John Bayliss Radio Scholarship

Official site:
Final Deadline: TBA

The Bayliss Foundation has been distributing scholarships to outstanding broadcast students for over 23 years. Each award is in the amount of $5,000. The number of scholarships awarded each year depend on the size of the endowment. In 2005, the Bayliss Foundation began a partnership with top communications schools nationwide in an effort to bring a strong radio presence to college campuses.

Please note that scholarships are not available to graduate-level students.

Juniors and seniors majoring in Broadcast Communications who have maintained a 3.0 GPA or better are encouraged to apply. Although financial need is a consideration, students of merit with an extensive history of radio-related activities are given preference. Applicants must provide an official transcript, a resume, three letters of recommendation evaluating their scholastic and personal strengths and a descriptive essay outlining his or her future broadcasting goals. Awards are announced in the summer and applied toward the fall semester.
