Helping students beyond the classroom… that’s what the Lone Star EMMY Scholarship Program is designed to do.
Why is this important? For several important reasons. We’ve all been students before so we know the value of a supportive hand… especially when it comes to college tuition. Secondly, these same young people will hopefully be our colleagues in the not-too-distant future… what a great way to help them on their way. And finally, they’re bright, enthusiastic, full of energy and come to us with innovative ideas… we can all learn something from them in the process of supporting their education.
Your support of the Lone Star EMMY Scholarship Program is invaluable. We will recognize and award both undergraduate and graduate students from across the State of Texas with scholarships. These scholarships are offered on an annual basis to students in accredited college and university electronic media programs. All of our recipients have met the scholarship criteria outlined by the Board of Directors which include a 2.5 grade point average, financial need, participation in organizations both on and off campus, and work experience, and they have submitted an essay describing their future plans.
The Lone Star EMMY Scholarship Program has taken the lead in supporting our Texas students. Thanks to all of you and let’s keep up the good work.
