Doris Gregory 2021 Scholarship
New Mexico Press Women invites university and college students to apply for a higher education scholarship offered for the 2021–2022 academic year. NMPW annually awards two Doris Gregory Memorial Journalism Scholarships. The first-place winner will receive $1,000, while the first-runner-up will receive $500. The 2021–2022 award will also honor the memory of press women friend Roslyn K. “Roz” Pulitzer, who passed away earlier this year.
Recipients must be continuing students in pursuit of a graduate or undergraduate degree or minor in print journalism, broadcast, photojournalism, public relations, communications or advertising at a New Mexico college or university the following fall 2021 semester. Applicants are evaluated based on career potential and academic progress through their submitted work samples, transcripts, a 500-word essay and two letters of recommendation. Scholarship applicants are asked to complete the application form and other items that make up the application packet. Click here to download the application.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the scenic Ghost Ranch, where I received two awards for my writing and the Doris Gregory Memorial Scholarship. I met inspiring people, attended intriguing workshops, and enjoyed vegan cuisine (my favorite dish was the tofu taco option at lunch on Saturday). I’m very grateful I had the opportunity to be at the conference, where I formed connections with many wonderful women and men and learned how to strengthen my writing skills. I look forward to keeping in touch with everyone!

New Mexico Press Women invites students to apply for three higher education scholarships offered this year, open to students regardless of gender. Main criteria for the awards are career potential, although scholastic standing is a consideration. The deadline is Friday, March 6.
NMPW offers one $1,275 Cary Herz scholarship to a student studying photojournalism. This scholarship will be awarded to the student whose photojournalism best reflects Herz’s work. Before applying, students are encouraged to become familiar with her work, especially her final project, “New Mexico’s Crypto-Jews: Image and Memory.” This is the final year for the Cary Herz scholarship.
NMPW also annually awards two $750 Doris Gregory Memorial journalism scholarships. Recipients for both scholarships must currently attend a New Mexico college or university and major in print journalism, broadcast, photojournalism, public relations or advertising.
Scholarship applicants are asked to fill out an application form available online at http://newmexicopresswomen.org/scholarships-2/. The application packet includes a brief description of career goals, samples of work, a copy of transcripts and a letter of recommendation from a professor, employer, mentor or other individual familiar with the student’s work.
Scholarships will be awarded at the NMPW state convention awards banquet during the conference Saturday, April 25, at the Ghost Ranch Conference Center in Abiquiu, New Mexico. Recipients will receive a ticket to the awards banquet.
