    The Scholarships360 Research Team reviews all scholarships individually and strives to exclude any scholarship where any of the below applies:

    • The scholarship requires a fee to apply
    • The scholarship provider’s privacy policy allows for the misuse of student data
    • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)
    • Student are required to sign up for a site or service to apply*
    • The scholarship seems primarily used for lead generation** or idea harvesting purposes***
    • The scholarship website has many grammatical errors and/or advertisements
    • The scholarship or scholarship providing organization seem untrustworthy
    • There is no evidence the scholarship was previously awarded
    • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months
    • There is no available contact information

    If you believe a scholarship has been published in error, please reach out to [email protected] and we’ll take a look!


    * There are certain exceptions to this, for example if the sponsoring organization is a major corporation or nonprofit with its own scholarship application system.
    ** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
    ***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.

    How to win journalism scholarships

    Before you begin your journalism scholarship applications, it’s a good idea to sit down and take some time to reflect on the approach you’ll take. Try jotting down the answers to these questions, without concerning yourself with your writing style, grammar, or efficiency; just get your ideas out on the page:

    • What does journalism mean to me?
    • How do I hope to impact the world by practicing journalism?
    • When did I first know I wanted to study journalism?
    • What past experiences have demonstrated my potential in the field of journalism?
    • What have I accomplished that could be applicable towards a career in journalism?
    • Where do I see myself in ten years in the field of journalism?

    Once you’ve got the answers to these questions, try asking a family member, friend, or trusted adult what they think. They might be able to offer you insights into yourself that you would not have realized! Having all this material spelled out on the page is a great asset when it comes time to write your applications. You’ll already have the bulk of your essay ready, and your only task will be formatting it to be well-written and conform to various word limits and prompts.

    Writing a great essay
