Ed Bradley Scholarship
In 1994, RTDNF presented the first Ed Bradley Scholarship. Since then, 22 young and aspiring journalists have received the award created by the late CBS News and 60 Minutes correspondent. Ed Bradley received the Paul White Award from RTDNA in 2000. The Paul White Award recognizes an individual's lifetime commitment to excellence in journalism. Bradley received the First Amendment Award from RTDNF in 2005 in recognition of his support of the First Amendment rights guaranteed in the constitution.

"I am truly honored to receive the Ed Bradley scholarship," said Moore. "This scholarship has permitted me to finish my education at the University of South Dakota, and continue to strengthen my journalistic endeavors. To be an African American male in journalism and to have such an example in Ed Bradley means a great deal to me. Due to his hard work and efforts, he has made it possible for several other African Americans to excel in this field as well. I am eternally grateful for receiving this scholarship and I truly hope that my future endeavors in journalism will honor his name."
