Scholarship for college journalist offered

PROVIDENCE – The Rhode Island Press Association will present a $1,000 college scholarship this spring to an outstanding college student preparing for a career in print journalism.

Students need not be majoring in journalism to be eligible. Instead, judges are looking for academic achievement and a demonstrated interest in print journalism, such as work on school or community newspapers.

Nominees must be residents of Rhode Island attending any four-year college or university or nonresidents enrolled at a Rhode Island college or university who are entering the 2019-20 academic year as juniors, seniors or full-time graduate students. The scholarship money is paid directly to the student. The deadline for applications is Friday, March 29.
