Scholarships Available For HBCU Media Students

Beyonce recently shed light on the importance of Historically Black Colleges and Universities during this year’s Coachella performance and now Chevrolet is lending a helping hand. Our guests today are Dr. Benjamin Chavis, NNPA president and CEO and Denise Rolark Barnes, The Washington Informer publisher.

They are giving us insight into a new fellowship opportunity called Discover The Unexpected Journalism Fellowship, sponsored  by Chevrolet. This program provides funding for journalism students attending HBCUs.

Chevrolet and the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA) are giving HBCU students an exciting opportunity to Discover the Unexpected (DTU) about themselves, our communities and everyday people making a real difference.

DTU Fellowship candidates are HBCU students with an interest in journalism who are up for a road trip driven by hands-on experience, exciting challenges and discovering inspirational stories in the African-American community.

Using NNPA’s professional resources and the all-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox’s innovative technology, DTU Fellows will share stories that shatter perceptions, jump-start their journalism careers and encourage us all to Discover the Unexpected.
