The Jim McKay and Mike Wallace Memorial Scholarships
Online applications and full instructions available at
The two scholarship awards honor legendary broadcasters Jim McKay and Mike Wallace and are bestowed to an outstanding high school senior who intends to pursue a communications-related baccalaureate degree in pursuit of a career in any aspect of the television industry. Each grant provides the recipient with a $10,000 stipend towards their education.
"The Jim McKay and Mike Wallace Memorial Scholarships reflect the best traditions of the National Academy, honoring the contributions of two great broadcasters as well as the creative and academic achievements of a new generation," said new NATAS Scholarship Committee chairman Adam Sharp, a 1996 recipient of the National Academy's scholarship program. "These scholarships are an investment in television's future and create meaningful opportunities for these honored students."
The Board of Governors of NATAS Northwest Chapter is immensely proud of its continued commitment to educating young people to appreciate and create excellent television in our region.
Since 1985, the NATAS Northwest Chapter has awarded more than 80 scholarships to aspiring television professionals sharpening their storytelling skills at universities in our five-state region.
Our scholarship activities would not have been possible without the initial contributions from those who helped establish our scholarship fund. Those contributors included the University of Washington School of Communications, the families of Elizabeth Wright Evans, Pat Egan, Arthur Pattison and Don McCune. The Board of Governors of NATAS Northwest will be forever grateful for the generosity of these vital partners.
In 2011, we initiated a memorial scholarship to honor a young television profession, Tricia Moen (1972-2011), who was taken far too young from her family, friends and a promising career as a consummate television producer. It is through this generous gift that Tricia will continue to inspire young producers to relish their lives and their vocation. The Tricia Moen Memorial Scholarship Fund
