SAJA 2014 Journalism Scholarships

SAJA is pleased to offer up to $60,000 in scholarship and internship assistance this year to help students pursue their education and future careers in journalism. Scholarship applications are now being accepted.

If you will be a high school student, undergraduate, graduate student in Fall 2014, and you’re pursuing a journalism career, here’s your chance to get help with your educational expenses. The scholarship amounts typically range from $2,500-$5,000 each.

These annual monetary awards recognize the reporting abilities and commitment of emerging journalists. Students from across the United States, Canada and South Asia can apply for the awards. But applicants must be pursuing their education in a North American educational institution in Fall 2014.

Applicants must either be of South Asian origin or demonstrate a strong interest in covering South Asia and/or the diaspora.

The judging is conducted by SAJA professional members.

Applicants with financial hardship may be given special consideration. Recipients are expected to give back to SAJA by volunteering at the annual convention or at other events during the year. They also must provide an update of their journalistic endeavors and achievements at the conclusion of the academic year.

The 2014 application is due at 11:59pm ET on March 9, 2014. Winners will be notified in early April.
