Excellence in Journalism 2019 travel grants available

We are pleased to announce that, for the fifth year in a row, we’re offering a travel grant for one SPJ member and one student to attend the 2019 conference. This year’s Excellence in Journalism conference will be held in San Antonio, Texas, from Sept. 5-7. 

Last year’s winners were Jordan Fenster, who then worked for Gannett but now works for Hearst Connecticut Media, and Sarah Willson, a student at Central Connecticut State University.

Connecticut SPJ is offering a grant of up to $1,100 to cover the cost for one member to attend, as well as another $500 to help a student attend. If you’re interested in applying for the grant, please send a short essay, along with your SPJ member number, to Cindy Simoneau, a past president of the CTSPJ board, at simoneauc1@southernct.edu. Simoneau will prepare all entries for a blind review by the CTSPJ board.

Applications are due by July 6 at noon. The winners must be members in good standing of CTSPJ. New members are welcome to apply.
