Which type of scholarship are you applying for?
Financial Aid Scholarship
PERSONAL STATEMENT: Students should consider this portion of the application as one of the most important. Please describe how your circumstances qualify you for either the Multicultural Journalism Scholarship or the Financial Aid Scholarship. The statement should be written in full sentences and be at least a paragraph, but no longer than 500 words. Please be sure to proofread and spell check thoroughly. Your effort here will reveal how much your care about earning the scholarship.
DEPOSIT CHECK: The scholarship provides tuition reimbursement for the Jayhawk Media Workshop, except for a $50 non-refundable deposit. Deposit checks will be cashed for any student who is chosen as a scholarship recipient. Students not selected for scholarships will receive their check returned by mail. The check for $50 must be received at the JMW offices by May 6, 2023. Failure to send the deposit check will result in disqualification for the scholarship. Please write the check to "KU School of Journalism." Please mail to "Jayhawk Media Workshop Scholarships, 318 Stauffer-Flint Hall, 1435 Jayhawk Boulevard, Lawrence, KS 66045."
I will provide a $50 deposit check by the deadline of May 6, 2023.
LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION One of the criteria for this scholarship is a completed and delivered letter of recommendation from my high school media adviser or language arts teacher. The deadline for receipt of this letter is May 6, 2023. The letter can be delivered to KSPA in two ways: 1) email: please email to firstname.lastname@example.org; 2) by mail: please mail to "Jayhawk Media Workshop Scholarships, 318 Stauffer-Flint Hall, 1435 Jayhawk Boulevard, Lawrence, KS 66045." Applications will not be processed until the letter of recommendation is received.
I understand the requirement for a letter or recommendation and the deadline of May 6, 2023.
APPLICATION: I understand that this scholarship application is not my registration for the Jayhawk Media Workshop. If I receive a scholarship, I will need to register for the workshop, using a link provided by JMW at that time. If I fail to register for the workshop by the deadline, I will lose my scholarship.
