WTNH News 8 & WCTX MyTV9 announced today that their parent company, LIN Media, is now accepting applications for its Minority Scholarship and Training Program and will award one broadcast television scholarship/internship and one digital media scholarship/internship in April 2012.
Each student will receive a two-year scholarship for up to ten thousand dollars ($10,000) per year, which can be used toward tuition, fees, books, and room and board. In addition, each student will obtain hands-on training through a paid internship program at one of LIN Media’s television stations around the country. The Minority Scholarship recipients will be assigned full-time positions upon graduation and successful completion of the training program.
LIN Media has been awarding two-year scholarships to ambitious students interested in a wide spectrum of fields in or relating to broadcast television since 1998. In January 2011, the program was expanded to include a new two-year scholarship and internship for multicultural students pursuing a career in digital media.
Applications will be accepted until March 16, 2012. The application and criteria for LIN Media's Minority Scholarship and Training Program can be accessed via the Company’s web site: http://www.linmedia.com/contact-us/minority-scholarship-program/ .
