About the Scholarships
The Journalism Education Association sponsors up to five $1,000 scholarships for education majors who intend to teach scholastic journalism. Each recipient must be an upper-division or master’s degree student in a college program designed to prepare him/her for teaching at the secondary-school level. Current secondary-school journalism teachers who are in a degree program to improve their journalism teaching skills are also eligible.

- A 250-word essay explaining his/her desire to teach high school journalism.
- The answers to the three questions at the bottom of the application form.
- Two recommendation letters, preferably from those who have firsthand knowledge of his/her work with student journalists, and
College transcript(s) showing academic standing.
