The Conclave To Offer New Scholarship Competition
March 1, 2011 at 4:02 AM (PT)
THE CONCLAVE is about to launch a new college radio/webcaster scholarship competition at the 71st Annual International IBS COLLEGE RADIO & WEBCASTING CONFERENCE in NEW YORK, next week. The IBS Conference is being held at THE HOTEL PENNSYLVANIA on MARCH 11th-13th.
The DOUG LEE Memorial Scholarships -- given annually to college students in the name of the founder of THE CONCLAVE -- will now be assisted by IBS, who not only will help THE CONCLAVE publicize the availability of the scholarships but who will also provide the pool of candidates for the competition. To qualify for THE CONCLAVE scholarships, a student must be working/volunteering at an IBS member radio station or webcaster. The three scholarships -- worth $1,000 each - will be awarded on the basis of an essay submitted by the candidate.
Next week, the scholarships, been made possible by a generous grant from dmr/direct marketing results, will be introduced to IBS students at the 71st annual IBS INTERNATIONAL COLLEGE RADIO / WEBCASTING / PODCASTING CONFERENCE in NEW YORK CITY during a special CONCLAVE presentation, "Breaking Into The Business- Show & Tell!" on SATURDAY, MARCH 12th.
"We are absolutely thrilled by this important new partnership for THE CONCLAVE," said Executive Dir. TOM KAY. "Involving college radio and its leading proponent, The INTERCOLLEGIATE BROADCASTING SYSTEM, in our quest to help educate our industry is a most logical and essential collaboration. These scholarships, generously provided by DIRECT MARKETING RESULTS, represent yet another means of bringing talent into our industry and we thank IBS for the opportunity to expand these important scholarship offerings to their members."
