Deadline: 7 September 2012
The SAJA-Knowledge@Wharton scholarship was established in 1999 in collaboration with the South Asian Journalists Association, an organization of more than 800 journalists of South Asian origin in the U.S. and Canada. This unique scholarship program is designed to enhance the quality of minority business journalism. It provides a member of SAJA (as well as up to one journalist each belonging to AAJA, NABJ, NAHJ, NAJA) with a scholarship to attend Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists in Philadelphia.
Each scholarship (which covers cost of tuition, course materials and most meals) is worth about $1,995 and is furnished by Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. The award does NOT cover travel to and from Philadelphia or lodging. The Award is presented by SAJA and Knowledge@Wharton, the Wharton School's research and business analysis journal. SAJA is responsible for the administrative process and works with the other groups representing journalists to select the winners. It reserves the right not to award a scholarship.
Who Can Apply? Any member of SAJA, AAJA, NABJ, NAHJ, NAJA who is a reporter, editor or producer (including freelancers) currently living in the United States or Canada and working in business journalism or a field that overlaps, such as healthcare or technology. Applicants must be available to attend the Wharton program this year. Individuals between two-seven years of experience as a business reporter or those new to business reporting, but with five-10 years of experience as a reporter in another field, are encouraged to apply. Freelancers are welcome to apply.
Winners will be informed September 14, 2012
