Stephen Rice Memorial Scholarship Fund - for LBGTQ+ Students in Media
February 21, 2019
I am on the scholarship award committee for a new scholarship fund in Austin created in honor of a dear friend and beloved local radio personality, Stephen Rice.
The purpose of the Stephen Rice Memorial Fund is to provide an annual $2,500 scholarship to a young Gay/Lesbian/Transgender/Bi/Queer student pursuing a degree in Radio/Television/Film or Journalism. The Fund is offering a LGBTQ Media Scholarship (“Stephen Rice Scholarship Fund”) through KOOP Community Radio and will be awarded to the high school senior(s) and/or current college student(s) who best meet the requirements set forth by the Scholarship Committee. Scholarship awards are limited to cover tuition and fees. Award amounts are limited to $2500/year and at the discretion of the Scholarship Committee.
My purpose of this email is to inform your department of this scholarship and to politely ask that you help spread the word to students so they may explore applying for it. Applications must be received by April 30th, 2019 and scholarship recipients will be notified by June 15, 2019.
