Reynolds Scholarship for Business Writing

The deadline is approaching to apply for one of eight non-renewable scholarships of $4,000 to college juniors or graduate students for their following academic year.

The scholarships are funded by the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism. Deadline for applications is Feb. 2, 2009, with scholarships awarded March 17, 2009 for the academic year that commences in fall 2009.

The scholarships are for business journalism majors, or journalism majors with a concentration in business journalism, who are seriously interested in pursuing a career in business journalism. In some cases, other students who have gained experience solely through opportunities such as business journalism internships will be considered.

A journalism faculty member must nominate the student following the directions below.

The Reynolds Center will review the qualifications of the candidates before the final eight selections are announced. Each student through his or her university will receive $4,000 that will be applied to the coming academic year.

Students must be enrolled full-time. Financial need is not a criterion.

The postmark deadline for scholarships is Feb. 2, 2009.

Professors nominating students for a scholarship should:

1. Fill out the scholarship nomination form. The form is available for download at

2. Mail the nomination to the Reynolds Center.

3. Inform the student of his or her nomination.

The nominated student must then:

1. Fill out the scholarship submission form at

2. Mail the form along with a resume, 500-word essay and three samples of print, online or broadcast work to the Reynolds Center.
