The deadline is fast approaching for student journalists to apply for scholarships and grant funding from the Western Washington chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.
This year we're offering three scholarships for deserving students and grant funding to help cover expenses connected with your students' summer internship.
The scholarships for the 2019 – 2020 school year are as follows:
- Two SPJ Western Washington Pro chapter scholarships to undergraduates majoring in journalism or communications at two-year or four-year colleges in Washington.
- One June Anderson Almquist Memorial Scholarship offered to a female undergraduate student majoring in journalism at the University of Washington.
We are also offering the SPJ Western Washington intern grant. Internships are an important entry into journalism, but most are cost-prohibitive and prevent diverse voices from joining the field. This grant is intended to support an undergraduate or graduate student at a Washington state college or university who needs financial assistance to complete an internship. The amount of this grant will be based on the student’s financial need.
The deadline to apply is May 31.
