SAJA: Journalism scholarships, deadline 3/15

SAJA 2015 Journalism Scholarships | Deadline: March 15, 2015

SAJA is now accepting applications for its 2015 high school, undergraduate, and graduate-level journalism scholarships. Last year, SAJA awarded $60,000 in scholarship and internship assistance. This year, the organization looks forward to again making substantive awards to help students pursue their education and future careers in journalism.

High school students, undergraduates, and graduate students continuing their studies in the fall of 2015 are eligible to apply for funding for their educational expenses. Scholarship amounts typically range from $2,500-$5,000 each. These annual monetary awards recognize the accomplishments and commitment of emerging journalists.

Students from across the United States, Canada and South Asia can apply for the awards. All applicants must be pursuing their education in a North American educational institution in fall 2015. Applicants must either be of South Asian origin or demonstrate a strong interest in covering South Asia and/or the diaspora.

The judging is conducted by SAJA's professional members. Recipients are expected to give back to SAJA by volunteering at the annual convention or at other events during the year. They also must provide an update on their journalistic endeavors and achievements at the conclusion of the academic year.

Applicants with financial hardship may be given special consideration.


The 2015 application is due no later than 11:59pm ET on March 15, 2015. Winners will be notified in April.
