The Country Radio Broadcasters are now accepting applications for the Rusty Walker Scholarship program, which provides for an all-expense paid trip and attendance to Country Radio Seminar 2017, to be held Feb. 22 - 24, 2017.

Interested parties can apply now through Monday, Nov. 7 at CountryRadioSeminar.com and click on the Rusty Walker Scholarship link. Each applicant must fill out an online application and submit a paragraph explaining why he/she should be considered as a Rusty Walker Scholar. Eligible applicants must be a full-time radio station employee and a first-time CRS attendee.
