Scholarship recipients were recognized at the National High School Journalism Convention.

JEA and NSPA will provide up to 50 need-based registration scholarships for Boston-area students. Each scholarship recipient will receive free registration and a convention T-shirt, and will be invited to a mix‘n mingle reception on Thursday evening to meet the other recipients. Funding for these scholarships is being sponsored by Walsworth Publishing Co.

Priority will be given to students from underrepresented groups and low-income students. To apply, students must complete the application form at the following URL:

Students will be asked to include a written explanation of why they want to attend the convention and how the scholarship would help them. A letter of recommendation from the school media adviser or other school administrator should address the student’s interest in journalism as well as the student’s financial need.

Each scholarship will cover the recipient’s registration fee but not hotel or other expenses.

Students attending the convention must be accompanied by a media adviser or other responsible adult.
