You’ve reached the San Antonio chapter of the Society for Professional Journalists, the oldest organization representing journalists in the United States. We host area networking events and workshops and put on an annual fundraiser called Gridiron, an SNL-style political satire show that raises money for scholarships for local student journalists.
Scholarship deadline fast approaching
The Society of Professional Journalists San Antonio Chapter is accepting scholarship applications from journalism students for the 2022-23 academic year, and YOU could be a winner. The deadline to apply is April 18, 2022. Winners will be announced on April 30, 2022.
For the complete rules and conditions, visit our scholarship section of the website.
The Society of Professional Journalists San Antonio Chapter awarded seven scholarships for the 2021-2022 scholarship year. Visit our scholarships page for complete bios of the 2021-22 recipients.
We were able to provide those scholarships thanks to our wonderful sponsors — WellMed, University Health System, H-E-B, VIA Metropolitan Transit and San Antonio Express-News — and all the fans who bought tickets to our annual fund-raising show, Gridiron.
