The Letterman Telecommunications Scholarships were established in the 1985-1986 school year by David M. Letterman, a 1970 radio-television graduate of Ball State. Mr. Letterman’s intention is to continue these scholarships indefinitely, and in no event for less than 10 years. In 1987 he guaranteed that intention by depositing $90,000 in the Ball State Foundation. The purpose is to provide financial assistance to Ball State majors and minors in telecommunications.
