WMSC Excellence in Radio Scholarship
90.3 WMSC FM is an alternative rock and talk college radio station owned by Montclair State University, largely operated by university students and supported by the School of Communication and Media. The station broadcasts locally at 90.3 MHz, worldwide via their website, and is also available via the iHeartRadio app.
In the past three years, WMSC has earned national recognition receiving a nomination for the prestigious Marconi Award and several college broadcasters wins and nominations including being nominated for Best College Station in The Nation (in colleges of +10,000 students).
There are currently 17 student directors who oversee the station’s operation in the areas of news, sports, music, production, promotions, ticket giveaways, website, social media, engineering, morning show production and office manager. The station currently has over 45 disc-jockeys on air, almost 70 contributors and over 500 general members, all volunteers.
Students who participate at WMSC have, as a result, obtained internships at commercial stations such as WDHA, 101.5FM, WCBS, iHeartRadio and SiriusXM among others.
The WMSC Excellence in Radio Scholarship has been established to assist outstanding Montclair State University sophomore, junior, and senior students in defraying tuition costs. This scholarship is awarded annually to one or more students who have demonstrated considerable achievement in the department and have significant potential for future creative development in the broadcast arts.
