Ed Bradley Scholarship
The Ed Bradley Scholarship is open to sophomores, juniors or seniors who are pursuing careers in radio, television, or digital journalism. One winner per year is chosen to receive a scholarship and an invitation to attend the Excellence in Journalism conference.

Students may apply online by completing an application and including work samples, a cover letter, resume, and a letter of recommendation. Applications open in January.
Many applicants who have been chosen to receive the scholarship have established exciting careers as reporters, anchors, speechwriter for the White House, and even comedy writer for Saturday Night Live television show.
