The scholarships will cover the cost of NewsTrain along with the recipient's accommodations and travel expenses.
NewsTrain host committees will review applications and choose the recipients. The first NewsTrain will be held April 29-30 in Springfield, Ill., and Midwest candidates will have the best chance. In all, up to four scholarships will be awarded for the Springfield event.
Interested journalists and students of color who need assistance attending NewsTrain in Springfield should send a resume and application letter by March 25 to host committee chairman Bob Heisse at firstname.lastname@example.org.
