ProPublica will be sponsoring need-based scholarships for 20 students to attend an eligible journalism conference in 2019. Anyone who is a U.S. resident is welcome to apply. ProPublica especially encourages students from an underrepresented group — including people of color, women, LGBTQ people and people with disabilities — to apply.
The $750 scholarships will go to students who would otherwise be unable to attend. These conferences offer great opportunities for networking and professional development, especially for those just starting out in journalism. Scholarship recipients will also have the opportunity to meet up with any ProPublica staff also in attendance. Check out last year’s scholarship recipients.
You can apply for the scholarship here. The deadline to apply is Feb. 15.
