Into journalism or new media? See how you can get a scholarship
Google and the Associated Press have launched a national scholarship program designed to support the development of digital and new media skills in aspiring journalists. The AP-Google Journalism and Technology Scholarship program will extend six USD 20,000 scholarships to undergraduate (sophomores and above) and graduate students pursuing degrees related to the intersection of journalism, computer science and new media in the 2012 to 2013 academic year. The scholarship’s administrators are looking for students working on “innovative projects that further the ideals of digital journalism” from a variety of geographic, gender and ethnic backgrounds. Applications are now being accepted for the 2012 to 2013 academic year. Recipients will be announced this spring. The scholarships represent just a slice of the the USD 5m Google promised to donate to fostering the development in digital journalism in October 2010. In February, Google awarded USD 2.7m to the International Press Institute’s News Innovation Contest. (EJC)
