WIPB Offering Student Grants for Video Productions

For the third year, WIPB-TV is offering grants of up to $10,000 to student teams to support the creation of original local video for Broadcast (television show or promotional videos) and Online (website/interactive) delivery.

Students are asked to describe in 500 words or less how their team will collaborate with other students to develop their local video project. Teams may include two or more Ball State University students from any academic discipline. Students may be undergraduate or graduate and must be enrolled as full-time status. All work must be completed by April 2012.

Past grant recipients include Sculpting the Wind: Alexa King and the Making of the Barbaro Memorial Statue, winner of multiple awards including four Emmy nominations. Information about this documentary can be found at

To apply for a grant, interested students should download the WIPB Grant Initiative Call for Proposals (pdf) available at and submit their proposal by Friday, September 23, 2011. No late applications will be accepted.
