Greater Public scholarship to honor founder Shaw

By Dru Sefton

Public radio’s biggest fundraising group is offering an annual scholarship in honor of its recently deceased founder.

Greater Public, formerly DEI, announced the Nate Shaw Scholarship during the 2013 Public Media Development and Marketing Conference (PMDMC) in July. The scholarship will be administered by YPpubmedia, the organization for young professionals in public media, and cover the cost for one individual to attend the annual conference.

Shaw died May 29 at the age of 76. Throughout a career in public broadcasting, he helped develop new fundraising strategies for stations.

Send tax-deductible contributions to DEI Scholarship Fund, 401 N. 3rd St., Suite 370, Minneapolis, MN 55401.
