Journalist Scholarship Steps for the 72nd EWA National Seminar

EWA is pleased to offer scholarships to qualified journalists. Scholarships may be used to offset the costs of attending the seminar, potentially including registration, travel, and/or lodging. Scholarships are granted on an individual basis, provided  funding is available.

  1. Review the Terms and Conditions
    You will be asked to agree to them as you submit your scholarship application.
  2. Apply for a Scholarship
    You will need to describe your financial needs and qualifications.
  3. Wait for an Award Confirmation
    Your scholarship application will be reviewed by EWA. An application submission does not guarantee a scholarship will be awarded. Applicants may be awarded partial scholarships that do not include all costs requested.
  4. Receive Award Letter
    You will receive an award confirmation letter by email.
  5. Register for Seminar
    After you receive the award letter, you must register for the seminar by the deadline provided in the letter.
  6. Book Your Hotel Room
    After you receive the award letter, you must book your own room. Follow the limitations noted in the letter.

  9. Complete the Seminar Evaluation
    After the seminar, complete an online evaluation. You will receive a link and instructions by email.
