Gannett and Gibbs journalism scholarships open for Maine students
The Guy P. Gannett Journalism Scholarship Fund and the Agnes Freyer Gibbs Scholarship Fund seek applications from Maine students.
Applicants must be graduates of Maine high schools or have been home-schooled in Maine. Candidates will be selected based on their interest in journalism through their choice of coursework and extracurricular activities, as well as financial need and academic achievements.
The Gannett Scholarship provides support for students majoring in journalism or a related field, including print, broadcast or electronic media by helping pay the 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, with a preference for female applicants.
The two funds share an online application for which the deadline to apply is April 1.
Interested candidates can apply at www.mainecf.org.
The Maine Community Foundation has worked with donors and educators since 1983 to provide Maine students access to educational opportunities and manages more than 650 scholarship funds.
