The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences – Upper Midwest Foundation invests in the next generation of media professionals by providing scholarships for high school and college students, as well as classroom grants for regional educators.

Each year, NATAS-UMW Foundation awards several scholarships to students within our chapter region (Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and western Wisconsin).

Scholarship recipients receive $1,500 for tuition & books. Since 2002, the NATAS-UMW Foundation has awarded 98 scholarships worth $221,000 to regional students who want to study media production or journalism in college.

We also provide grants for classroom media equipment. Since 2017, the Upper Midwest Emmy® Foundation has provided 10 grants totaling nearly $14,600.

Every donation helps! Please show your support for Upper Midwest Emmy students and teachers!
