Digital Media Scholarship Offered For Minorities

 PROVIDENCE, RI - LIN Media, a multimedia company, has announced the expansion of its Minority Scholarship and Training Program to include a new two-year scholarship and internship for multicultural students pursuing a career in digital media.

“We are pleased to not only support students’ career aspirations, but to also provide the valuable training that will help them to achieve their goals.”
LIN Media has been awarding two-year scholarships to ambitious students interested in a wide spectrum of fields in or relating to broadcast television since 1998. The addition of a second scholarship for digital media reflects the continued growth of LIN Media’s digital business and the Company’s commitment to promoting diversity in the workplace, which helps ensure the dynamic future of local media.

In June 2011, LIN Media will announce the recipients for both the broadcast television and digital media scholarships. Both students will each receive a two-year scholarship for up to ten thousand dollars ($10,000) per year, which can be used towards tuition, fees, books, and room and board. In addition, LIN Media will provide each student hands-on training through a paid internship program at one of its 32 television stations around the country.

“The program’s expansion will help infuse our organization with new skills and talent for our growing digital business,” said Vincent L. Sadusky, president and chief executive officer. “We are pleased to not only support students’ career aspirations, but to also provide the valuable training that will help them to achieve their goals.”

LIN Media’s Minority Scholarship and Training Program is an integral part of the Company’s strategy to strengthen its talent base and deepen connections within its local communities by building on the cultural diversity of its workforce. The application period is open from January to March 2011. Students are selected for the program based on various criteria, including academic achievement, passion for broadcasting and digital mediums, as well as a strong desire to contribute to the overall advancement of the industry.

Both Minority Scholarship recipients will be assigned full-time positions at LIN Media upon graduation and successful completion of the program.
