2018 Scholarships Contest



The 2018 Deadline Club Scholarships Annual Competition

The Deadline Club scholarship competition is open to undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in journalism or journalism-oriented communications programs in the New York City metropolitan area, which includes all campuses within 50 miles of Columbus Circle.

This year, depending on its financial position, the Foundation plans to award a total of up to $10,000 through as many as four merit-based scholarships of $2,500 each.

Recipients will be determined by a panel of journalism and communications professionals and educators that looks for students who have demonstrated, through both scholarship and practice, a potential to contribute to the highest standards and goals of the craft.

Prospective students who have been accepted by a qualifying program in the New York metropolitan area, and who plan to enroll by September, are eligible to apply provided they meet all other criteria. They do not need to be currently enrolled in a New York metropolitan area school. However, they will not receive their award until they provide evidence of official enrollment in a qualifying program; they will also be expected to join either their student SPJ chapter or The Deadline Club upon enrollment.

The deadline for applications is Friday, April 27, 2018 at 11:59 p.m.
