wharton-logoThe Wharton School is inviting business journalists to apply for the Penn Wharton Public Policy Scholarship which will allow up to five business reporters who cover aspects of public policy either domestically or internationally to attend the Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists flagship program in Philadelphia this year.

Each scholarship covers the cost of tuition, course materials, most group meals, lodging for three nights and airfare within the U.S. (where appropriate).

In addition, accepted journalists may request private, one-on-one meetings with faculty members of the Penn Wharton Public Policy Initiative. The scholarship does not cover any other expenses. Other restrictions may apply.

The Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists, now in its 48th year, offers participants an opportunity to expand their business knowledge and increase their exposure to leading experts in a stimulating environment.

Through intensive lectures and hands-on exercises, the program, led by the Wharton School’s most prominent professors, helps participants gain a better understanding of key business and economic issues. Besides the Penn Wharton Public Policy Scholarship, numerous other financial aid options are available for reporters interested in attending the Seminars. To learn more visit the Seminars financial aid page.

The program runs Oct. 8-11, 2016.  The Penn Wharton Public Policy Scholarship deadline is Sept. 9; other deadlines vary by scholarship.  Non-scholarship applications are due by Sept. 21, 2016.

The Seminar will take place at the Wharton School on the University of Pennsylvania campus in Philadelphia.

Registration is required to attend this program. Visit the Seminar application page.
