Bob Stevens Memorial Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,500
Awards Available: 1

The Bob Stevens Memorial Scholarship is awarded to an outstanding journalism student who has demonstrated dedication to their school newspaper or yearbook, though is not necessarily planning on majoring in journalism in college. The award is co-sponsored by the New Jersey Newspaper Foundation. The scholarship amount is $1500 to be used towards college.

Bob Stevens was a dedicated teacher at Highland Park High School for many years, where he served as the adviser to the Highland Fling, the student newspaper. He was one of the founding members of the GSSPA, and he served as the first president of the organization. After his death, the GSSPA started this scholarship to honor his memory and to help an aspiring journalist who is a student of a GSSPA member.

The scholarship check of $1,500 will be issued after the winner provides the GSSPA with a copy of the first tuition payment to the college where the winner has enrolled.

Applications will be judged by a panel of independent judges, chosen by the New Jersey Newspaper Foundation.
