Bill Walsh Scholarship


The Bill Walsh Scholarship will be awarded to a student who demonstrates excellence in the editing of news. They will receive $3,500 and financial aid to attend the ACES national conference. The Walsh scholarship will go to an applicant who aspires to edit news and who demonstrates the talent and passion for language that Bill Walsh devoted his career to. Judging of the applications is done by two separate panels of five people each. The selection of winners is a two-step process. In December, the judges choose the finalists, who then take a timed editing test in early January. Test results are then added to the applicants' portfolios, and a re-judging decides the winners. Please visit the scholarship's website for more information.
