Honoring the late Lisa McKay, a 2018 Country Radio Hall of Fame inductee who famously mentored numerous young, female radio professionals during her 16 years of programming WQDR/Raleigh, this scholarship program awards three aspiring female radio programmers the opportunity to attend their first-ever CRS. Each scholarship package will include complimentary registration, hotel, and airfare for CRS 2023, held March 13-15, 2023. Scholars will be recognized at CRS 2023 during CRS Honors, which is the kick-off to the 3-day event.
