The Sinclair Broadcast Diversity Scholarship Fund was established in 2016 to provide financial support to college students interested in broadcasting, journalism, and marketing. The Fund plans to award up to 10 scholarships of up to $5,000 each per year for the next ten years to students from under-represented minority groups who need financial assistance to complete their education.
The Fund complements Sinclair’s existing widespread internship program as well as Sinclair’s long-standing relationships with numerous colleges, including historically black colleges and universities in markets where Sinclair has stations. This Fund is another way for Sinclair to invest in the future of broadcast television, by ensuring that students dedicated to careers in broadcasting can complete their educations.
Sinclair is excited to have the opportunity to provide students with financial assistance and is now accepting applications for our 2017 scholarship. Students interested in applying must submit their applications by 11:59 p.m. on March 10th, 2017.
