Arkansas SPJ to award fall scholarships

Fall Scholarships

Attention students and media advisers.

We know the pandemic has brought on extra stress and financial burdens for students everywhere.

That’s why the Arkansas Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists is offering two $500 scholarships for the fall semester.

Students must act fast, though. The application deadline is Oct. 31. The two scholarships will be awarded in time for Thanksgiving! Checks will be made payable to the student.

Advisers, please help us identifying deserving students who are majoring or minoring in journalism, public relations, or a related communications emphasis.

Each of the scholarships will go to a student enrolled during the Fall 2020 semester. It will go to a student who is academically qualified, who demonstrates financial need, and who shows promise.

Each applicant may fill out an online application and submit a 500-word essay, reference letters and work samples at
