Applications Invited for William Randolph Hearst Endowed Scholarship for Minority Students

Deadline: March 15, 2005

The Nonprofit Sector Research Fund ( http://nonprofitresearch.org/ ), a grantmaking program of the Aspen Institute in Washington, D.C., annually offers the William Randolph Hearst Endowed Scholarship.

The scholarship, which is based on academic excellence and need, is open to both undergraduate and graduate students who are members of minority groups. The Hearst Scholar serves as a summer intern with the fund. Through the program, the fund seeks to introduce a diverse group of students to issues relating to philanthropy, voluntarism, and nonprofit organizations. In addition, recipients may arrange with their colleges or universities to receive academic credit for the experience.

The ideal candidate for the scholarship is a highly motivated continuing graduate or undergraduate student from an underrepresented community. The student must be able to intern for ten to twelve weeks full-time during the summer at the Washington, D.C., office of the Aspen Institute. All travel and housing costs must be covered by the student.

A scholarship grant of between $2,500 and $5,000 will be awarded, depending on the recipient's educational level, financial need, and time commitment.

See the NRSF for complete program information.
