The Fred Rogers Memorial Scholarship
The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, in association with Ernst & Young LLP, has established a scholarship in honor of Fred Rogers, the creator and long-time host of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.
The scholarship is intended to support and encourage an aspiring upper division or graduate student to pursue a career in children’s media that furthers the values and principles of Fred Rogers' work.
The scholarship, in the amount of $10,000, will be awarded annually to a qualified applicant. In addition to the monetary award, successful applicants will work with a "mentor" from the Children’s Programming Peer Group during the academic year. Mentors will be identified from either the Los Angeles or New York membership and assigned based on proximity to the recipient. The mentor and the recipient will communicate in person, by phone and by e-mail on a regular basis.
