CRB/CRS Now Accepting Apps for Rusty Walker Scholarships
|RADIO ONLINE | Monday, October 7, 2019|
Country Radio Broadcasters (CRB) is now accepting applications for the Rusty Walker Scholarship program. It provides travel, accommodations and complimentary registration to attend Country Radio Seminar (CRS) 2020, set for February 19-21, 2020. Individuals that are interested in applying must do so by October 31. Each year, through the Rusty Walker Scholarship program, CRS gives complimentary registration to three driven radio employees who have never had the opportunity to attend the 3-day educational and networking event.
CRB/CRS Board President Kurt Johnson commented, "Education is central to the mission of CRS and was such an important thing for the scholarship's namesake. Every year these scholarships help aspiring industry professionals advance their future, and that's good for all of us."
Each applicant must fill out an online application and submit a paragraph explaining why he/she should be considered as a Rusty Walker Scholar. Eligible applicants must be a fulltime radio station employee and a first time CRS attendee. Three individual scholarships will be awarded.
Each scholarship includes a full CRS 2020 registration, as well as airfare and hotel room expenses for three nights (Wednesday, February 19 through Friday, February 21, 2020). Scholars will be recognized at the CRS 2020 Opening Ceremonies.
The Rusty Walker Scholarship program is named in honor of Country Radio Hall of Fame member Rusty Walker, who died in May, 2012 at the age of 59. Interested parties can apply now at www.countryradioseminar.com/rusty-walker-scholarship.
