The Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism will award eight scholarships of $4,000 to college juniors or graduate students for their following academic year.
Deadline for applications is Feb. 1, 2008, with scholarships awarded March 15, 2008 for the academic year that commences fall 2008. Scholarships are available to students at universities throughout the U.S.
These non-renewable scholarships are for business journalism majors, or journalism majors with a concentration in business journalism, who are seriously interested in pursuing a career in business journalism. In some cases, other students who have gained experience solely through opportunities such as business journalism internships will be considered.
A journalism faculty member must nominate the student.
The Reynolds Center will review qualifications of the candidates before final eight selections are announced. Each student through his or her university will receive $4,000 to be applied to the coming academic year. Students must be enrolled full-time. Financial need is not a criterion.
