Nonprofit Communications and Media Network
Scholarship Opportunity 
Deadline: April 30, 2017 

The Nonprofit Communications and Media Network (NCM Network) gives back to the community through an ongoing scholarship program for college students in the communications field. Since 1972, NCM Network has sponsored the Lisa Davidson Memorial Scholarship Program for college sophomores and juniors majoring in communications, journalism, radio or television communications at a four-year Southern California college or university.

The scholarship is named in memory of Lisa A. Davidson, a gifted public service coordinator at KNBC-TV and NCM Network member, who died tragically at a young age in an automobile accident. Lisa Davidson Memorial Scholarships are supported by contributions to the Ruth Collander Endowment Fund.

The purpose of NCM Network’s scholarship program is to recognize outstanding students who demonstrate excellent potential for improving the lives of the Southern California community through a communications career.
