Recipients will have a profile featuring them (including their photo and essay) published on our Village Media websites.

Who is eligible?

Students enrolled in a post-secondary journalism program starting this September. 

How do you submit your application for the scholarship?

You can enter by submitting an essay (between 500 - 1000 words) on the importance of local journalism, as well as your information, here.

Entries must be submitted by the end of day on August 27, 2021. Full details and submission rules are here.

We are thrilled to offer this opportunity to the journalists of tomorrow.
