Michael D. Walsh Student Broadcasters Trustee Scholarship

The Michael D. Walsh Student Broadcasters Trustee Scholarship benefits Penn State students who make independently programmed and operated campus radio at The LION 90.7fm possible. Growing the Michael D. Walsh Student Broadcasters Trustee Scholarship supports both Penn State students and a Central Pennsylvania culture of independent community radio that has enriched the lives of so many young people over many generations. The Michael D. Walsh Student Broadcasters Trustee Scholarship generates more than $7,500 annually, awarded to Pell-eligible undergraduate members of The LION 90.7fm.
