Journalism and public relations majors at IUP are selected for the Emily A. Fabiny Memorial Scholarship.
Journalism and public relations majors must have a GPA of 3.0 at the close of the spring semester before the award is made and must have achieved junior status.
The Emily A. Fabiny Memorial Scholarship for journalism and religious studies majors was established in 2005 and alternates between the two departments every other year.
The scholarship recipient will be announced in the spring semester and
awarded in the following fall and spring semesters. The awarding panel
reserves the right not to award any scholarships during an academic year
if none meet the required scholarship qualifications.
Finalists may be invited to an interview by the awarding panel.
