Each scholarship will consist of free registration to the full conference plus $200 to help with travel costs.
Preference will go to business journalistsÂ who fit one of four profiles:
— Those who are out of work due to media cutbacks and want to stay in business journalism;
— Business journalism freelancers;
— Winners of 2008 Best in Business Awards whose employers will not pay for them to pick up their awards;
— Employed business journalists who are coming at their own expense and make a compelling case for how they would benefit from attending;
To be eligible, winners must register for the entire conference. SABEW board members and students are not eligible.
