KBA High School Senior Scholarship Fund
This high school senior scholarship is a post-secondary partial scholarship program for children of employees of Kentucky radio and television stations. KBA will annually award fourteen (14) scholarships of fifteen hundred dollars ($1,500) each to qualified sons and daughters of employees of Kentucky broadcast stations.
Deadline for applications is May 1, 2023
KBA Harry Barfield Scholarship
Four scholarships of $2,500 apiece are available to students who are currently majoring in broadcasting or communications at a college or university in Kentucky. The scholarships are awarded through a competitive application process which includes academic achievement, recommendation of a faculty member, extracurricular activities and a 500 word essay. Since the scholarship awards are renewable for a second year provided recipients continue to meet specified criteria, priority consideration will be given to students who are rising juniors.
The scholarship is named in honor of Harry Barfield, the late chairman of the Kentucky Broadcasters Association and manager of WLEX-TV in Lexington.
