Missouri Press Foundation offering scholarship


The Missouri Press Foundation, in partnership with the Missouri School of Journalism and Reynolds Journalism Institute, announced the all-new Rural Missouri Newspaper Scholarship. A deadline of Jan. 31 has been set for the first applications to be submitted for consideration for the first year of funding, awarded for the 2022-23 academic year.

A need-based award, the Rural Missouri Newspaper Scholarship will provide up to $40,000 for qualifying students attending the Missouri School of Journalism for four years. Students chosen for the program must be pursuing a degree in journalism or strategic communication, and upon graduation students receiving the scholarship will be expected to work for a rural Missouri newspaper for at least two years.

Qualification is determined through the federal FAFSA program. Additional funding opportunities include a $5,000 summer fellowship through the Reynolds Journalism Institute (RJI) and a further $1,200 from RJI’s Potter Digital Ambassador Program.

An application for the Rural Missouri Newspaper Scholarship can be found on the Missouri Press Association website, www.mopress.com.
