Now in its final year, the AP-Google Journalism and Technology Scholarship Program fosters new journalism skills in undergraduate and graduate students developing projects at the intersection of journalism and technology.
Our 2014 AP Google scholars each will receive scholarship awards of $7,500 and a one-year ONA membership, as well as recognition at ONA’s annual conference.
The program is targeted to individual students creating innovative projects that further the ideals of digital journalism. A key goal is to promote geographic, gender and ethnic diversity, with an emphasis on rural and urban areas.
Our two-year partnership with the Associated Press and Google is at an end, but we were fortunate to have excess funds to support two more winners for the 2014-15 academic year. We’re thankful to both AP and Google for supporting our inaugural program.
We’re looking for additional scholarship partners for the 2015-16 academic year. If you or your organization are interested, please contact Irving Washington.
