The Guy P. Gannett Journalism Scholarship Fund and the Agnes Freyer Gibbs Scholarship Fund of the Maine Community Foundation have awarded $235,000 in scholarships to 10 Maine students.
A volunteer review committee chose the students based on their interest in journalism, excellence in academic performance, and financial need.
The Gannett Scholarship provides support for students majoring in journalism or a related field, including print, broadcast, or electronic media. The scholarship helps pay tuition to attend an undergraduate, graduate, trade, or technical school.
The Gibbs Scholarship provides support to graduating high school seniors planning to major in journalism or a related field.
Applications for the 2021 Gannett Journalism Scholarship and Gibbs Scholarship will be available in January.
