Greater Milwaukee Foundation Journal Foundation/JAMS Scholarship

Generously funded by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation Journal Foundation, this scholarship is given to a declared JAMS, major enrolled full-time, a U.S. citizen, and with demonstrated academic merit and financial need. Preference is given to a student in the journalism track. Preference will also be given to students with an affiliation with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Milwaukee operations of E.W. Scripps Co. (for example, WTMJ-TV) or Gannett Wisconsin (for example, the Green Bay Press Gazette). Contact the department for a full list of affiliated companies. An affiliation could include a job at one of these companies or a relative who works or worked at one of these companies.

Students who have an up-to-date Panther Scholarship Portal General Application and the College of Letters & Science Scholarships and Awards Application will be considered, typically in spring each year between February and April. No additional or separate application is required; students should thoroughly fill out the Panther Scholarship Portal General Application and the College of Letters & Science Scholarships and Awards Application. Awards given in spring are for the following school year so students graduating that same spring or summer are not eligible. E.G. applications reviewed in Spring 2023 are for Fall 2023; students graduating in May or August 2023 are not eligible.
