COUNTRY RADIO BROADCASTERS (CRS) will present a $25,000 scholarship to TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY during CRS 2014 opening ceremonies in FEBRUARY.
The gift will be endowed in perpetuity to fund scholarships for full-time TEXAS A&M undergraduate or graduate students pursuing a degree in Agricultural Communications and Journalism, with a focus in Broadcasting.
"The broadcast department at TEXAS A&M particularly impressed the committee with its enthusiasm about the business and what it has done over the past year to enhance their physical plant with state-of-the-art equipment,” said CRS Scholarship Chairman JOHN SHOMBY. “They have been strong participants and supporters of CRS and appear to be an ideal place to train future broadcasters."
This endowment is the fifth $25,000 scholarship CRS has awarded in recent years.
CRS 2014 will be held FEBRUARY 19th-21st, 2014, in downtown NASHVILLE. More information here
