The News Media Guild will award two $2,000 scholarships and one $1,000 wild card scholarship. Your application form is below and a return-address postage-paid envelope is enclosed for your convenience. Responses must be RECEIVED no later than 2 p.m. Thursday, June 4, 2015, to qualify.

The scholarships will be awarded by lottery the same day to any Guild member or his/her spouse or partner, children, parents, grandparent or grandchild, or other member of the nominating Guild member’s immediate household.  In the event of a change in status, the relationship at the time of the drawing will prevail.

The wild card scholarship allows a member to apply for a relative, a friend or a co-worker.

Scholarship candidates must be Guild members in good standing, or sponsored by a member in good standing.  Members may sponsor only one candidate. Prior winners cannot reapply.

If an individual is sponsored more than once, his/her name will be placed in the lottery only once. The name of each candidate’s sponsors will be listed on the lottery ticket.

Scholarship candidates must be enrolled full‑timeor part-time in an accredited degree or certification program in an accredited, post‑secondary educational institution for the 2015-2016 academic year.

All winning candidates must provide proof of enrollment, such as a copy of a paid receipt for a current tuition bill before scholarship monies will be remitted.  (For students on a multiple payment plan, proof of the initial payment is sufficient).

In the event a non-qualifying candidate is selected, the Guild member making the nomination will be given the opportunity to substitute the name of an individual who does qualify. If a qualified candidate cannot be substituted there will be a new drawing from the remaining nominations.
