The Georgia Association of Broadcasters wanted to recognize the late Lanny Finch, our President Emeritus for his outstanding leadership, dedication and numerous contributions to the continued success of this association. Therefore, our scholarship program, benefiting both member stations and students, was reestablished in 2005. The association honored Lanny by creating The GAB E. Lanier (Lanny) Finch Scholarship Foundation.
The scholarships presented by the GAB Scholarship Foundation are in the amount of $1,500 each. Up to five scholarships may be awarded each year. Applicants must be registered as a full time student at a fully accredited college or university, a rising junior or senior studying for a degree in some aspect of the broadcasting industry and a bona fide resident of the state of Georgia.
The scholarship is presented each winter in the Hall of Fame luncheon.
