DUPONT PIONEER DONATION DOUBLES NAFB FOUNDATION'S INTERNSHIP GRANT PROGRAM
Source: joint organization news release

DuPont Pioneer and the National Association of Farm Broadcasting (NAFB) Foundation announced today a donation from the business to double the number of student internship grants available to NAFB member radio and television stations and networks.

Funded solely from a $10,000 grant, the internship program will be titled the DuPont Pioneer NAFB Foundation Internship Program.

"We are quite pleased that Pioneer offered to be a title sponsor of this program," says Ken Anderson, NAFB Foundation president. "NAFB is gratified Pioneer recognizes the value of the farm broadcasting profession and is supporting the important work of the foundation with this generous donation."

With the Pioneer donation, the NAFB Foundation will fund enough for ten internship opportunities. The internship program was originally initiated with funding for three grants and expanded to five grants for 2011 and 2012.

"The internship program underscores the commitment that Pioneer places on providing accurate and timely information to agricultural producers," says Jerry Harrington, DuPont Pioneer sales and marketing public relations manager. "The grant also complements the efforts Pioneer is making to support the entry of young people into agricultural careers."

Each grant awarded to NAFB member stations helps provide students an on-the-job experience in agricultural broadcasting - from the production of agricultural information reports to live reporting from agricultural events and activities. Students interested in the internship should contact their local farm broadcaster and encourage him or her to apply for the DuPont Pioneer NAFB Foundation grant.

"This is a big step forward for our internship program," Anderson says. "Pioneer has been a significant supporter of the NAFB Foundation for a number of years."

To apply for the $1,000 grant, NAFB members can download and complete an application at www.nafbfoundation.com. The application process opens in February 2013 and closes in March. New internship programs and existing internships are both eligible for grant funding.
