OUTSTANDING INTERN AND SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS
Bay Area STAR’s primary fundraising goals center around our well established Outstanding Intern Awards and Scholarship Program. This program has been going strong since 1994. Every year we are committed to awarding a minimum of $15,000 to college students pursuing careers in the media and broadcast industry. This consists of $500 Outstanding Intern Awards and $1500 STAR Scholarships. These awards are based on the recommendations made the interns supervisors at our member companies and a set of stringent criteria defined by Bay Area STAR.
Our fundraising goals also include subsidizing on-going advocacy, educational, and networking events for our valued members. These events provide the most current trends and information affecting our broadcast community as well as providing essential opportunities for our members to network on a face-to-face basis.
