Each year, NATAS-UMW Chapter/Foundation awards several scholarships to students within our chapter region (Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and western Wisconsin).
This year, thanks to help from generous sponsorship contributions from Slumberland, the Carlini, Pfister and Beaurline families as well as our chapter members and past Gold & Silver Circle recipients, we are able to award $6,000 in scholarships to area students! This year, each scholarship recipient will receive $2,000 for tuition & books costs for school in the fall of 2017.
Since 2002, the NATAS-UMW Chapter/Foundation has awarded 80 scholarships worth $191,500 to regional students who want to study media or journalism in college
