Arizona high school students who wish to study journalism at an Arizona college or university may be eligible for assistance from the Betty Latty-Hurlburt Memorial Journalism Scholarship, sponsored by Arizona Press Women and the Arizona Newspapers Foundation.

Arizona Press Women, a statewide organization of professional communicators, established the $500 scholarship honoring the memory of Betty Latty-Hurlburt, a Phoenix journalist who died in 1997.

Applicants should be graduating high school seniors who intend to major in journalism at an accredited Arizona University or college. Requirements include a letter of recommendation from a high school teacher, a statement of financial need, two writing samples and a one-page letter from the student stating their background and the reasons they want to pursue a career in journalism.

Application deadline is April 1, 2006. The winner will be honored at a luncheon in May 2006. For more information, contact Arizona Press Women in Phoenix at (602)279-5130 or e-mail PRStevensn@aol.com.
