The April 30 application deadline for VOCareer.com’s Chuck Riley Memorial Scholarship is fast approaching. The scholarship and VOCareer.com will help one voice-over student get the start he or she hoped to get in voice-overs but could not otherwise afford.

  • have a passion for voice-overs, acting and performance.
No current, professional voice-over talent are eligible.
 
THE 'NEXT' CAREER
 
Adam Goodman, president of VOCareer.com says, “We hear of so many people in need of a ‘next’ career option who posses every skill to be able to be a voice-over star.
 
"The great part of being a voice-over artist is that you only need your voice," he adds. "People who are disabled or who have become recently disabled and unable to perform the physical jobs they once could, are our prime targets to be awarded this scholarship.”

The scholarship winner will receive:
