Bill Walsh scholarship


Scholarship Value: $3,500
Awards Available: 6

Six scholarships are awarded annually through the ACES Education Fund. One is the Bill Walsh scholarship, in honor of the late editor, author, and ACES guiding spirit. The winner receives $3,500 plus financial aid to attend the ACES national conference.

Additionally, the ACES Aubespin scholarship winner receives $2,500 and four other winners receive $1,500 each - also with aid to attend the ACES conference. The generosity of donors enables all of these awards.

WHO CAN APPLY?

Applicants must be seeking degrees as enrolled college/university juniors, seniors, or graduate students during the summer and/or fall term in 2020. Scholarships are awarded without regard to the student's major or field of academic concentration. Previous scholarship winners are not eligible.

REQUIREMENTS

Specifics regarding the applications for all the scholarships can be found at the "Apply Here" link below. The Walsh scholarship will be awarded to an applicant who demonstrates the talent and passion for language that Bill devoted his life to and who aspires to pursue the craft of editing the news.

Applicants for the other five scholarships should have a commitment to a career in the editing of written materials.

By submitting a separate application for each, an entrant can seek both the Walsh and one of the other scholarships, but can win only one. There will be two separate sets of judges.

Applications are made by email. All entry materials must be in English.
