Applicants must be a California resident or attend an accredited college or university in California. Included in the application is a 300 to 500 words autobiographical essay explaining your family background, including any hardships you’ve experienced, why you want to be a journalist and what you believe is the role, if any, of Latino journalists in the mainstream news media. Applicants should submit work samples such as articles and/or photographs published in school or community newspapers, or stories broadcast on campus or cable TV or radio stations.
