KCII Radio is again offering two $500 Business and Broadcasting scholarships for area high school seniors. Applications for the competitive scholarships are now available and must be turned in by May 15. The scholarships are for high school seniors who plan to study business or broadcasting after high school at a two-year program or four-year college or university. KCII General Manager Joe Nichols says why KCII does this every year, “I think helping any kid to further their passions is something that we want to help with and feed that passion. And if this scholarship can help somebody to pursue a dream of theirs or a career they want to go into, we want to be a part of that and help them to do that. And also, we believe in the broadcasting industry, and hope that’s a passion that somebody else out there has. And who knows, we’ve had a lot of people who have received these from us and come back and been part of our company either with us or one of our sister stations.” Applications for the KCII scholarships are available at local high school guidance counselor offices and by following this link.
