Black Play-by-Play Broadcaster Grant & Scholarship Fund

Our 501(c)(3) nonprofit is looking to distribute scholarship money to black college undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in pursuing a career in play-by-play sports broadcasting. A lack of diversity in sports play-by-play is a glaring issue, and we are looking to address this from a grassroots level – with aspiring black broadcasters.

Our Board of Directors will be interviewing applicants beginning in about a month, with three (3) $1,000 scholarships awarded in time for the Spring 2021 semester. Beyond that, every applicant – regardless of whether they are awarded a scholarship- will be assigned a professional broadcaster mentor who will be reaching out to provide guidance as they navigate the early stages of the industry. Information about how to apply can be found on the flyer as well as at
