Young Publishers Grants
Young Publishers grants are designed to help high school students and advisers learn the skills required for success in newspaper publishing through the development of a business plan. To accomplish this, students and advisers must interact with and be mentored by volunteers from the local newspaper as the business plan is crafted.
In order to receive a grant, a high school must:
- Agree to start and document a business-side development program;
- Demonstrate that its student newspaper is either struggling to exist or has ceased to exist;
- Have a high proportion of minority students OR be located in and draw its students from a rural area.
Applications for the Young Publishers grant are accepted on a rolling deadline and must be submitted at least five weeks before the program starts.
