GoFund a student! #MoreLatinosInNews

Are you looking for a last minute gift? Are you looking for a tax deduction? Why don't you consider donating and sponsoring our first annual scholarship program! 

You can donate at our GoFundMe page.

Our chapter has started a scholarship program for college and university students in San Diego County and Tijuana, Mexico pursuing journalism careers in English and Spanish language media (TV, print, radio, digital, and photojournalism).

Our goal is to help local Latinos, and those that believe there should be more Latinos in news, and tell better stories about Latinos in news, both in English and Spanish.

We are looking to raise $1,000. The money will help with student tuition (paid to school), books (or school supplies), transportation (such as study-abroad expenses), or career related equipment (ex. digital camera/software). The Deadline is Dec. 31, 2017.

Winners of the scholarships will be announced in January 2018 and awarded scholarships in March 2018.

Scholarships recipients will be chosen from our scholarship subcommittee and scholarship partners, based on merit (GPA, resume, personal statement). The scholarship selection process will be done without knowing applicant's name and gender, to ensure fairness.

When you donate $50 or more you will receive a ticket to our awards gala. 

Donate $100 or more you will receive a ticket to our awards gala and attend all NAHJ San Diego-Tijuana Chapter events for free. 

All donors will receive a thank you letter with a tax deductible account of your donation.
