The student scholarship platform Bold.org is offering a $1,000 grant for current college students who are passionate about journalism on campus and have lots of ideas. This scholarship would cover the cost of a proposed journalism project for one lucky recipient. Bold.org said in their press release that some examples of projects include “initiatives like a campus radio show, a news film, and more. Applicants are encouraged to think big!” Proposed projects are not limited to one form and can be anything from video, to audio and print. Majoring in journalism is not a requirement, but applicants should have a passion for the field. The application is open to any field of study and all experience levels.
Applicants should also be enrolled in an “accredited undergraduate or graduate degree program at a 4-year, 2-year, vocational, or technical institution in the US.” The application, which can be found here, asks for an essay between 500-1,000 words addressing why the applicant’s project would be important to the student body and worth telling. The deadline to apply is Feb. 28 and the winner will be announced Mar. 26.
