CJA Scholarships

August 6, 2015

Dear Sir/Madam:

We are writing to make you aware of a scholarship opportunity for a journalism  student  attending an Illinois college or university. The scholarship will be awarded on Friday, Oct. 16, 2015 at a dinner hosted by the Chicago Journalists Association.

Originally founded as the Chicago Press Veterans Association, CJA is one of the  oldest journalism  societies in the Chicago area, this year celebrating our 76th anniversary.

The CJA board of directors is hopeful that you will notify journalism students  attending  your college or university about the $1,000 scholarship and urge them to apply.

Applications are being accepted through October 1, 2015 and the winner  will be honored  at the CJA’s 76th anniversary dinner being held at the Crowne Plaza Chicago Metro Downtown, 733 W. Madison St. in Chicago.

Please find the application guidelines and submission form by downloading the pdf here.

We very much appreciate your willingness to alert your students to this scholarship award.

Additional information is available at www.chicagojournalists.net. We will be  glad to answer any questions you may have.

Thank you. Sincerely, Lloyd Weston
