The Letterman Telecommunications Scholarships were established by David M. Letterman, a 1970 Radio-Television graduate of Ball State.
The purpose of this fund is to provide financial assistance to Ball State majors and minors in telecommunications who are deserving students due to their successful academic achievements.
There will be three lucky recipients and the award amounts are the following:
- $10,000 for the winner
- $5,000 for the first runner-up
- $3,333 for the second runner-up.
These awards apply to the next academic year and can be used for educational purpose only.
So as to be able to get this amazing award, the applicant must have between 30 and 102 credits at the end of the Fall semester and major or minor in telecommunications with at least 12 credits at the time of application.
Then, he/she must be enrolled at Ball State in a semester that falls within the 12 months immediately following the announcement of the award.
