The San Antonio Association of Hispanic Journalists is kicking off 2020 with a scholarship offered by San Antonio-native and New York Times best-selling author Shea Serrano. The Shea Serrano scholarship will provide a $5,000 scholarship to a student who is either interested in becoming a journalist or a published author.
This year the scholarship will be limited to students from or attending college in San Antonio. This eligibility requirement will change in 2021 to be open to all students regardless of residency.
A panel of five media and public relations professionals will evaluate the applications. Winners will be notified in late April and featured at the SAAHJ gala on Saturday, August 15, 2020.
The deadline to apply is February 17, 2020.
