The New York Financial Writers’ Association is offering $30,000 in scholarships this spring to undergraduate or graduate journalism students in the tri-state New York area who are seriously interested in pursuing a career in business and financial journalism.
The number of winners varies from year to year. Last year, ten scholarships were awarded of $3,000 each.
Applicants should follow these directions:
(1) Complete application providing your present address, email, and telephone number and, if different, your permanent home address. Applications are available at the NYFWA website: www.nyfwa.org. If you do not have access to an application, simply send a cover letter with the information.
(2) Send an essay explaining why you are pursuing a career in business and financial journalism.
(3) Include a current resume, relevant personal information, and list any other scholarships you have received.
(4) Send samples of your financial writing and clippings.
Awards will be presented at the Association’s Annual Awards Dinner before an audience of leaders from the business, financial and journalism communities.
