KAB Foundation

The Kansas Association of Broadcasters Foundation, is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to support the educational activities of the KAB. It was established by the Kansas Association of Broadcasters in 2003, and along with the KAB, has provided more than $340,000 to 350 Kansas students in the past 24 years.

About KABF

There is no more dynamic industry today than broadcasting.  Digital technology and web-based communications bring changes that make it imperative to improve educational opportunities for current and future broadcasters. The most pressing need is for qualified engineering professionals who are skilled in both transmitter and internet technologies.  At the same time we need ongoing sales training for both veterans and people new to our field.  As our industry changes, we need to train the next generation of broadcasters. We must inspire young people to carry on the storied tradition of broadcasting in Kansas.    

The Kansas Association of Broadcasters Foundation responds to these ever-changing industry demands by providing continuing education for established broadcasters and supporting Kansas young people who aspire to broadcasting.  Through the KAB Foundation, broadcast students in Kansas community colleges and universities receive annual scholarships to assist them in their education. These future broadcasters are passionate about our industry and must meet specific guidelines to qualify. They are motivated and attend our student seminars and participate in the awards competition.

If you would like to help us continue the mission of cultivating tomorrow’s broadcasters and providing ongoing training for professionals, please consider a contribution. Donations can come from stations, individuals or both. Any amount is helpful in sustaining our efforts.


Each year the KAB and KAB Foundation award $30,000 or more in scholarships to college students pursuing careers in media and to kids of Kansas broadcasters.
