Scholarships

MRB management participated actively in the award of six Eugene Area Stations (“EARS”) Scholarships
awarded in August 2016. The scholarship program is designed to assist students interested in pursuing a career in broadcasting. These scholarships totaling $10,000 were awarded to three college bound high school recent graduates and three students already in college.

MRB’s involvement included a leadership role by MRB President John Tilson in successfully advocating for, planning for, and implementing these scholarships. Mr. Tilson was the EARS Treasurer during the entire 2015/2016 EEO reporting year and was a member of the five person scholarship committee which reviewed applications. EARS sells announcements at steep discounts to non-profit organizations pursuant to its Non Commercial Sustaining Announcements (“NCSA”) Program. Cash received by EARS from this source enabled the financing of the Scholarship Program. The Unit stations, along with other EARS members, ran schedules in support of this program.
