Scholarships

Our vision-high school journalism matters more than ever.

The student scholarship deadline is Friday, May 14 at 5:00 p.m.

The Flint Hills Publication Workshop, in cooperation with the A.Q Miller School of Journalism at K-State, knows that high school journalism matters in our state. We believe in giving an opportunity to all high school journalists to be a part of our summer experience in Kedzie Hall.

 

What scholarships do we offer?

Through the generosity of the A.Q Miller School of Journalism, The Collegian Media Group will be offering six full-ride student scholarships to our journalism workshop, July 18-20, 2021, to cover tuition, room and board, and meals throughout your stay at the Flint Hills Publication Workshop.

 

Two 1st Generation Student Scholarships

Our 1st generation student scholarships are aimed at high school sophomores and juniors who will be the first in their family to attend a college/university in the foreseeable future.

 

Two Diversity Scholarships

This specific scholarship promotes equal journalistic opportunities for minority students; this includes race, cultural background and sexual orientation.

 

Two Need-Based Scholarships

We at the Collegian Media Group believe that all student journalists should have the ability to better themselves professionally through our summer journalism camp, and this scholarship targets students whose families have experienced financial hardships in the past year or two.
