Emily Bollinger

In addition to providing a public service to the community, WCBU also gives Bradley University and Illinois State University students an opportunity to learn alongside professional journalists through internships and paid positions.

We're proud to announce the recipient of the inaugural WCBU Scholarship: Olivia Streeter. Olivia, a Peoria native who attended Peoria High School, is now a junior in the Illinois State University School of Communication studying mass media. At WCBU, Olivia is a student reporter contributing on-air features and news, as well as occasionally hosting the weekday podcast, On Deck. She joined WCBU in 2020.

The scholarship is made possible by the Friends of WCBU fund.
