Preference is given to students majoring in Radio Broadcast Communications at each of the schools. Selection is not based solely on GPA, but may also be based on other factors, such as commitment to and promise in broadcasting, service to the school and community, or other criteria that the faculty or scholarship committee considers appropriate. Students enrolled in these schools who wish to apply for future scholarships should contact the scholarship committee chair for the current requirements and application deadline.

“One of our goals at SCBA is to attract the ‘best and the brightest’ to Southern California Radio”, said SCBA President Thom Callahan. “The SCBA Scholarships are designed to help qualified students see a ‘Welcome’ sign towards a fulfilling Radio career”.
