Students and new professionals scholarship

The Students and New Professionals Scholarship is designed for journalists with five years professional experience or fewer in digital journalism. Recipients will receive complimentary registration to ONA21, June 22-25, and will be notified by a member of ONA staff if selected. All applicants will receive notification of their status early June.
