Application deadline: June 10
Only schools or advisers may apply for BOMR Grants. The BOMR Grant funds the registration fee for a student to attend the MIPA Summer Journalism Workshop. Grants will be awarded to schools that are starting new student media programs or have new advisers, and then the adviser or school will designate the student(s) who will receive the financial aid. These scholarships are in honor of Bob Button, Gloria Olman, Larry Mack and Betsy Pollard Rau, journalism teachers, student media advisers and former MIPA leaders who have been inducted into the Michigan Journalism Hall of Fame.
MIPA typically awards two Button-Olman-Mack-Rau Grants each year. To apply, prepare a written statement telling about your new journalism program or about yourself as the new adviser and submit it to us with information about your and your school using the below form.
We will notify all applicants by phone, letter or email within two weeks of the grant deadline about whether they have been awarded a grant.
