Bob Stevens Memorial Scholarship for 2016

The Bob Stevens Memorial Scholarship is awarded to an outstanding journalism student who has demonstrated dedication to his or her school newspaper or yearbook. This scholarship does not require that the recipient major in journalism in college or pursue a career. Applications will be judged by a panel of independent judges, chosen from the many professional journalists employed in New Jersey.

The scholarship – valued at $2,000 – is awarded by Garden State Scholastic Press Association. The winner of the award is announced at GSSPA's Spring Advisers’ Conference in May.

Bob Stevens was a dedicated teacher at Highland Park High School for many years, where he served as the adviser to the Highland Fling, the student newspaper.

He was a founding member of GSSPA and served as the first president of the organization. After his death, GSSPA started this scholarship to honor his memory and to help aspiring journalists.

The student’s school newspaper adviser must be a member of the GSSPA in order to be eligible for the award. The membership fee is $25 per year. More information about GSSPA and membership is available online.

The application deadline is Friday, February 12, 2016.

The application form for the 2016 Bob Stevens Memorial Scholarship will be available soon.
