William Randolph Hearst Endowed Scholarship for Minority Students Supports Nonprofit Experience

Deadline: March 15, 2003

The Nonprofit Sector Research Fund (, a grantmaking program of the Aspen Institute in Washington, D.C., offers the William Randolph Hearst Endowed Scholarship in conjunction with a summer internship program open to members of minority groups based on need and academic excellence.

Both graduate and undergraduate students are eligible for the award. Through this scholarship program, the Fund seeks to introduce a diverse group of students to issues relating to philanthropy, voluntarism, and nonprofit organizations. Recipients may arrange with their colleges or universities to receive academic credit for this experience.

The student will learn about nonprofit organizations by reading and analyzing background articles and assisting in preparations for the Fund's annual conference. The annual conference brings together nonprofit leaders, researchers, and policy makers to discuss issues of importance to the nonprofit sector. The student will also undertake general research and program support for the Fund's grantmaking and outreach efforts.

The ideal candidate for this scholarship is a highly motivated graduate or undergraduate student from an underrepresented community. She or he should have a good academic record, and also have the following: research and analytical abilities; a background in the social sciences or humanities; excellent writing and communication skills; and demonstrated financial need. The intern must be able to be at the Aspen Institute in Washington, D.C. for 10-12 weeks during the summer.

A scholarship grant of between $2,800 and $4,200 will be awarded, depending on the recipient's educational level, financial need, and time commitment.

For complete program and application guidelines, see the Nonprofit Sector Research Fund's Web site.
