AVAILABLE FOR 2015
SCBA is offering two scholarships to The Poynter Institute for Media Studies. The scholarships cover tuition and some travel expenses. Scholarships are applicable to the two programs outlined below; however, a predetermined number of scholarships have been designated for each seminar. The top SCBA member candidates will be awarded the designated scholarships and any other SCBA members selected to attend the seminars will do so at their own expense. If no SCBA members apply or are selected to attend a particular seminar eligible for an SCBA scholarship then the scholarship(s) will roll over to the other remaining seminars and will be publicized to the membership. For more information on the scholarships and seminars, go to www.poynter.org

SCBA JOB FAIR
SET FOR APRIL 8
On Wednesday, April 8, SCBA will hold its 15th annual Collegiate Job Fair from 1:00-3:00 pm at the SC National Guard Armory in Columbia. The Job Fair is designed to assist stations with their outreach efforts while also providing them with the unique opportunity to meet and even interview students enrolled in broadcast programs at state colleges and universities. The Job Fair typically attracts more than 150 students, many of whom are due to graduate in May 2015. Stations will be provided with a draped display table and signage at no charge. The station registration deadline is Friday, March 27 and the school registration deadline is Wednesday, April 1.
USC SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS
SCBA is accepting USC scholarship applications for the 2015-2016 school year. Four $2,500 scholarships will be awarded to broadcast journalism majors--one to a rising sophomore, one to a rising junior and two to rising seniors. The application deadline is Tuesday, March 31, 2015.
BROADCAST INSPECTION PROGRAM (ABIP)
One of the most valuable member services offered by SCBA is the Alternative Broadcast Inspection Program (ABIP). Participation in the program protects your station from random FCC inspection for a period of three years. More importantly, it is a method to be certain your station is in compliance with all FCC regulations including all technical requirements and public file requirements. (Inspection excludes examination of EEO and political files.) If you do not currently hold an ABIP certificate, call SCBA today to schedule your inspection. If you do hold an ABIP certificate, be sure you check the expiration date and schedule your renewal inspection well in advance so you have no interruption in your protection. Information about how to enroll in the ABIP program is at http://www.scba.net/abip.htm Please call SCBA if you have any questions.
