UW-RF Journalism Professor Receives Grant

UW-River Falls journalism Associate Professor Sandra Ellis received a Wisconsin Broadcasters Association Education Support grant for 2003.

The grant is $1,951 and will provide funds to replace batteries, a charger and a tripod for teaching television news in the journalism department.

The department has a high quality video camera that is similar to cameras used by professional TV news photojournalists, but has been unable to use it due to old batteries and a dead charger.

New batteries and a charger are extremely expensive. Due to the current Wisconsin budget situation, the department could not purchase this equipment without a grant.

This is the fourth year of the WBA FoundationŐs Educational Support Grants Program. The grant expanded from a $3,500 grant in 2000 to a full $10,000 program that awards as many grants as possible.
