Students with a passion for storytelling who are interested in writing, photography, and design are encouraged to apply now for Peninsula College’s Webster Scholarship. Funding for the scholarship comes from an endowment established by the late Charles N. Webster, whose family founded local radio station KONP and the newspaper that is now known as the Peninsula Daily News.
PC’s award-winning student newspaper, the Buccaneer, allows students to develop communication skills that can be applied in the field of journalism and beyond.
Award amounts are dependent upon the student’s enrollment level, with awards up to $4,500 for an academic year. Scholarship recipients must be students who have identified their academic pathway as Communication – Journalism. Students must be enrolled in at least five credits each quarter, and maintain a 2.0 cumulative grade point average, with a 3.0 grade point average in journalism/multimedia classes.
Completed scholarship applications are due by November 30, 2020.
To apply, go to www.thewashboard.org, create an account and search for “Webster.”
