BOMR Students Scholarships for the MIPA Summer Journalism Workshop
Sending students to the MIPA Summer Journalism Workshop at Michigan State University is one of the best ways to get a head start on a great year (and your students will have a blast!). Up to two full scholarships are available to two schools that are starting new student media programs or have new advisers. The BOMR scholarships are in honor of four of our favorite teachers: Bob Button, Gloria Olman, Larry Mack and Betsy Pollard Rau, all of whom have been inducted into the Michigan Journalism Hall of Fame.

MPA Teacher Internships
The journalism teacher summer internship program is designed to provide current journalism teachers in Michigan with experience in today’s newsroom so the teacher can share this knowledge with students and become a more effective journalism teacher/adviser. Internships will be either four or six weeks long, and upon completion of the 40-hour per week internship and submission of the personal evaluation, teachers will receive $1,500 (four weeks) or $2,000 (six weeks).
