Television Academy Foundation - Mister Rogers Scholarship
The Television Academy Foundation's Mister Rogers Memorial Scholarship Program awards two $5,000 scholarships to rising seniors, graduating seniors (must be continuing directly to graduate school) and graduate students (Masters or Ph.D) to support and encourage them to pursue a career in children’s media and further the values and principles of Fred Rogers’ work. The scholarships are project-based and may not be used for tuition.
Winners will be flown to Los Angeles and recognized at the 38th College Television Awards Gala on May 24, 2017. Prior to the awards presentation, winners will participate in a two-day Television Nominee Summit with industry leaders and talent hosted by the Television Academy Foundation.
In addition to the monetary award, successful applicants are mentored by children’s programming professionals during the academic year.
