Scholarship deadline fast approaching

Tom McHale

The GSSPA helps sponsor two scholarships — the Bernard Kilgore Memorial Scholarship and the Bob Stevens Memorial Scholarship. The deadline for both is February 15.

The $5,000 Bernard Kilgore Scholarship is for seniors who plan to major in journalism. The winner also becomes the New Jersey Student Journalist of the Year, and is entered into the JEA National Student Journalist of the Year competition.

The $1,500 Bob Stevens Memorial Scholarship is also for senior high school journalists, but the winner is not required to major in journalism in college.
