Scholarship Name: William Randolph Hearst Endowed Fellowship for Minority Students
Description: While most scholarships cite leadership and volunteering as important character traits for applicants, fewer are designed for students who want to purse careers and studies in the field of volunteerism or philanthropy. The William Randolph Scholarship for Minority Students is a non profit research fellowship designed for students with a demonstrated interest in non-profit organizations and the way that they work. There is an internship component, where students have the opportunity to learn directly from the non profit sector to become the next generation of leaders. Eligible candidates can be undergraduate or graduate students with an excellent academic record, financial need, and writing and research skills. Fellowships are available in the fall, spring and summer.
Award: $2,000 – $4,000
Awards per Year: Varies
Award is Open to: Undergraduate Students, Graduate Students
Major/Field of Study: Open
How to Apply/Contact: The fellowship does not require a formal education, but interested applicants should send a resume, letter of interest, and other supplemental materials (which can be found on the Aspen Institute website) directly to the Aspen Institute for consideration.
