Apply by Feb. 28 for 2022 RTDNAC Student Scholarships

”RTDNAC was crucial to my Elon experience. From my first year, I was granted access to insight, feedback and mentorships with professionals from across the Carolinas. RTDNAC is a bridge to connect students with professionals.”

Those thoughts come from Meredith Stutz, reporter at WLWT, the NBC affiliate in Cincinnati, Ohio. A graduate of Elon University, she’s one of many past winners of an RTDNAC scholarship.

Each February, RTDNAC awards two $1500 scholarships to two currently enrolled rising juniors or seniors who are pursuing a major course of study with emphasis in broadcast and/or digital journalism.

One scholarship is awarded to a student attending a college or university in North Carolina. Another is awarded to a student in South Carolina.

Now is your time to apply for the 2022 RTDNAC scholarship competition. Applications must be received no later than Feb. 28, 2022.

“I’m so grateful for this scholarship, because it allowed me to focus on my studies and internships,” Stutz said. “Through this focused effort, I was able to have the best possible start of my career in Savannah a few months later (in 2015). Scholarships change lives, and RTDNAC changed mine for the better with ripple effects still felt today.”

The RTDNAC Board of Directors is proud of all of our previous scholarship winners. A number of them, like Stutz, are now working in the professional ranks.

The scholarships are made possible by Capitol Broadcasting Co./WRAL and Hearst Television Inc./WYFF 4 and the RTDNAC Board of Directors.
