The Kalas Award is given annually to a deserving college student(s) who has a stated desire and has shown initiative towards a career in sports broadcasting. The award was created in 2009 to honor the life and work of the late Philadelphia Phillies broadcaster Harry Kalas.

Current sophomores who will complete the coursework at the conclusion of the spring 2013 semester will also be eligible for the award.

The Philadelphia Broadcasters Foundation will award a minimum of one scholarship grant of $1,500, payable for the 2013 fall semester.  Additional scholarships may be granted at the discretion of the Foundation.

Application submissions are due no later than April 30, 2013.  Applications are available here.
