The National Association of Broadcasters proudly announces its
thirty-second year for the Program of Grants for research in
Broadcasting. You should note that this year's program announcement
contatins a change in the awards distribution that we hope will
open up the competition and braoden the types of funded research.
Although the pool of available funds will remain the same, this year
more than $5,000 can be awarded if a project merits additional funds.
Furthermore, an applicant may include a stipend in the proposal;
however, overhead and benefit costs are still not allowable expenses.
An application form may be obtained upon request. Both the
announcement and the application form are also available on our
The projects should be completed within twelve months from the time
the award is announced and must address problems of significance to
the U.S. commercial broadcast industry. The research proposed may be
theoretical or applied byt should have important practical
implications. The completed proposals will be independently reviewed
by a committee of broadcast industry professionals and academic
researchers. Winners will be announced at the 1998 Broadcast
Education Association and academic researchers. There will also be a
NAB/BEA joint convention session in which the 1997 grant winners will
present the results of their completed research projects.
