Why Do You Need This Book?
Have you decided to work on a degree in journalism, communications, or a related field? You have made a wise decision. You have picked a career that is not only exciting and dynamic, but one that is cutting-edge as well. Job opportunities in print journalism are projected to be stable for the next couple of years, and increases may be forthcoming in the future in broadcasting, public relations, advertising, and online.
Getting a journalism degree, however, can be expensive. It can cost up to $100,000 to complete an undergraduate degree, and that amount or more for an advanced degree. But, did you know that there are hundreds of grants, scholarships, fellowships, and awards set aside specifically to support undergraduate and graduate students working on a degree in journalism, communications, broadcasting, or similar areas? Wouldn't it be helpful to have information about this free money right at your finger tips? Now, you can! Reference Service Press has brought together information on all of these funding opportunities in a completely updated edition of How to Pay for Your Degree in Journalism & Related Fields.
How Is the Directory Oragnized?
Searching for this funding as never been easier. Each program description in the 2011-2013 edition of How to Pay for Your Degree in Journalism & Related Fields is prepared from current material supplied by the sponsoring organization. In seconds, you can read about the purpose, eligibility, monetary award, duration, special features, limitations, number awarded, and deadline date for any program that interests you. Plus, the book is organized so you can search for aid by type (scholarships, fellowships, grants, etc.), program title, sponsoring organization, where you live, where you want to go to school or conduct your research, journalism specialty, and even application deadline.
How to Pay for Your Degree in Journalism & Related Fields is one of several titles issued by Reference Service Press that identify funding opportunities for students in specific subject fields. Other titles cover:
What Makes the Directory Unique?
How to Pay for Your Degree in Journalism & Related Fields is unlike any other financial aid listing. Not only does it provide, by far, the most comprehensive coverage of commuications-related funding opportunities (nearly 750 entries), but it also offers the most informative program descriptions (on the average, more than twice the detail found in any other source).
In addition, only the biggest and best funding programs are covered in this book. To be listed here, a program has to offer journalism students at least $1,000 per year. Many go way beyond that, paying $15,000 or more each year, or covering the full cost of college attendance. And, keep in mind that this is "free" money; not one dollar awarded to you will have to be repaid!
No other directory comes close to providing the kind of coverage you'll find here!
