Deadline Approaching for School of Journalism Scholarship
January 25, 2017
Dear Journalism Majors,
Attached you will find the scholarship application for the 2017/18 academic year and the descriptions for the scholarships we have to offer (some aren't available every year due to funds or alternating agreements with other departments, but the great majority will be awarded each year). If you are interested in applying for a scholarship from the School of Journalism you must do two things:
-Complete the attached scholarship application and submit it to the School of Journalism main office by 4pm February 1st, 2017 (FINAL DEADLINE).
-IF YOU HAVEN'T DONE SO ALREADY, go to the Financial Aid website and complete the scholarship application through their electronic system. This is necessary for the money to be awarded if you are selected for a scholarship. Here is the website: http://scholarships.siu.edu/ .
-YOU MUST DO BOTH OF THINGS BY THE DEADLINE!
*Please note that some scholarships awarded will require additional information such as writing samples, portfolios, etc. and you will be notified later if you are being considered for one of those specific awards. Recipients of a scholarship are also required to write a professional "Thank You" letter to the scholarship donors or their respective contacts submitted through the SIU Foundation. Further information regarding all of this will be given to you if you are selected for a scholarship award.
Thank you and good luck!
School of Journalism/SIU
