The Foundation of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announced $90K in scholarships to seven college-bound high school students pursuing careers in television. 

“This year’s scholarship recipients had a lot in common. They showed tremendous creativity, sterling accomplishments and a never-give-up resiliency during these challenging times,” said Doug Mummert, Chair, Foundation (NATAS).“We are very proud of all our applicants and recipients and especially for the generosity of our donors who support these students on their paths to doing great things in the future of our television industry.”

 “The judges were highly impressed with the creativity of our student applicants this year, many of whom faced the additional challenges of interrupted school experiences and limited access to resources that would normally be available to them pre-pandemic,” said Melinda Roeder, Chair, Scholarship Committee (NATAS). “Members of the NATAS Scholarship Committee are pleased that our organization continues to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of these young creators who represent the next generation of television artists and storytellers.”

“We reaffirm our commitment to encourage and promote excellence in television for decades to come by investing in the great talents of these diverse and passionate students,” said Adam Sharp, President & CEO, NATAS.
