This scholarship gives a one time amount of $1,000.00 to a recipient each year. It can be used for any post high school education, including community college, university or trade school. It was developed in cooperation with the International Broadcasters Idea Bank, and is funded by Lenawee Broadcasting Company.

In 2017 the scholarship was awarded to a young woman studying broadcasting from Cadiz, Kentucky.
