The Chicago/Midwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences created a non-profit Foundation to award scholarships to college seniors, graduate students, and graduating high school students studying journalism, broadcast TV, production, and communications.
We give student scholarships because it’s who we are. The Television Academy is here to recognize, encourage, and support excellence in television and new media throughout our chapter. We recognize our working members with our Emmy® Awards. Our mentors, teachers, and pioneers are inducted into the Silver Circle; and we give scholarships to support and encourage the best students coming into our industry. We are always looking for excellence, from the beginning of your careers through 25 years of work and beyond.
Past Chicago/Midwest scholarship recipients include NBC’s Peter Alexander, WITI’s Michael Lowe, ABC7 Chicago’s Jessica D’Onoforio, and NYI’s Jessica Abo.
The Chicago/Midwest Chapter scholarship program has distributed $450,000 to students for scholarships since the mid-1990s. We have two types of scholarships.
