Founders Club and MAB Foundation Scholarships

The MABF recognizes many excellent broadcasting programs in colleges, universities and trade schools throughout Michigan and awards scholarship money to the high level students these programs produce.

Educators from each school nominate one outstanding student from their program to receive a $1,000 scholarship from the MAB Foundation. The following is a list of schools receiving scholarships for the 2020-2022 school year. If you are a broadcasting student at one of these schools and you think your work warrants a scholarship from the MAB Foundation, please contact your school’s broadcasting department head prior to January 03, 2022 to discuss a possible faculty nomination.
