Announcing the Congressman John D. Dingell Jr. Journalism Scholarship

Commercial and Public broadcasters owe so much to Congressman John D. Dingell, Jr., former Chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the longest serving member of Congress, who passed away February 7, 2019.

Congressman Dingell was a key supporter of the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967 that allowed for creation of PBS and NPR. He fought to ensure broadcasters were treated fairly in the first DTV transition in 2009 and during the FCC’s TV spectrum incentive auction.

In honor of this great statesman and friend to the broadcasting industry, the MAB Foundation has announced a goal of $50,000 to establish the John D. Dingell Jr. Journalism Scholarship.

Individuals and company’s wishing to celebrate “The Dean” may make contributions to the John D. Dingell Scholarship Journalism Fund. Checks should be made payable to the “MAB Foundation,” noting the “John D. Dingell Journalism Scholarship Fund” in the memo line. Send donations to  MAB Foundation 820 N. Capitol Ave. Lansing MI 48906. Our goal is $50,000.
