The California College Media Association seeks applications for the CCMA Career Development Scholarship. This scholarship is designed to give financial assistance to a student who needs support in order to pursue his or her studies or practical experience. One example of how this scholarship could be used would be to help make an unpaid internship this summer more sustainable.
The CCMA board will award two applicants with grants of $1,000 each. Applicants’ place of employment will not play a factor in the board’s decision. Applicants must be CCMA members.
