Scholarships support interns, high school journalists

The Bloomington Press Club is funding the futures of several young journalists and just ended the application process for the next crop.

The club’s internship/scholarship program will provide two $1,000 stipends to junior or senior IU students. For fall 2010, participating agencies are Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard and Middle Way House. The application process ended April 8.

As they finish their internships, the IU students address the press club to bring members up-to-date on their experiences. Interns Darcy Marlett, who worked with the American Red Cross, and Julia Haller, who worked with Girls, Inc., will report on their experiences at the April 26 meeting.

The board has approved two scholarships for IU’s High School Journalism Institute students. Each summer, high school students from around the country come to learn skills at intensive workshops. This year, they arrive at IU in June for workshops in yearbook editing, multimedia, newspaper editing and design.
