Just one week left to apply for the AP-Google Scholarship!
AP and Google are funding six $20,000 scholarships for undergrad and graduate students working at the intersection of journalism and technology. Applications are due Friday, Feb. 8. Don’t wait to get your project proposal together. We want to see creative and innovative projects that show how you’ll expand the boundaries of journalism. Apply now.
And for inspiration, be sure to check out our first scholar's blog — Kevin Schaul kicks off a series of guest posts by the 2012 AP-Google Scholars, with background and resources focusing on why open source is so important to journalism. Each of the six scholars will be blogging on journalists.org over the coming weeks about their experiences with digital journalism and their award-wining projects.
