2017 Roy W. Howard National Collegiate Reporting Competition

Step 1 of 2

  • Instructions:

    A letter of recommendation from your supervising editor or producer, newspaper adviser, faculty member, or the dean or director of your communication program is required along with this application. The letter should explain why the recommender believes you are a good candidate for the program and verify that your work was broadcast or published in print or online without major alterations. Click here to send instructions to your recommender on uploading your letter. Be sure to complete this step well in advance of the Jan. 10 deadline to give your recommender time to respond to the request. You may complete this step before or after you have submitted the rest of the application.

    The Roy W. Howard National Collegiate Reporting Competition, sponsored by Scripps Howard Foundation and The Media School, is open to full-time undergraduate students who are returning to college in fall 2017 as undergraduates. Selected students are required to travel to Japan on or about May 11-20, 2017. Participants who are unable to take the trip must forfeit any and all prizes, and the award will be offered to the next runner-up. The deadline to apply is 11:59 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2017. The Roy W. Howard Fellows will be announced by Jan. 30, 2017.
