Ampers supports the concept that the survival and growth of radio broadcasting is dependent on talented and well-educated individuals interested in a career in broadcasting. To this end, Ampers offers an annual $1,000 scholarship to an individual, working at an AMPERS station, that is or will be pursuing a career in broadcast communications through an institution of higher education in the State of Minnesota. The award will be issued to the educational institution in the winner’s name to be applied towards tuition.
