Every year the Women’s Media Group* provides one of our Publishing students with a $4,000 scholarship for the Spring semester and a three-year membership to their organization.
To qualify for the scholarship, interested students write a brief leadership essay where they share their commitment to publishing and media (whether through school literary magazines or newspapers, audio/visual broadcasts, internships, work experience, creative projects, or other avenues) and provide an example of their demonstrated leadership and interest in promoting written and/or visual literacy, diversity, and amplification of underrepresented voices in the media. This year there were seven applicants.
In December, the scholarship and a three-year WMG membership was awarded by the WMG Scholarship Committee to Yaritza Santana for her outstanding essay.
