John Wolin Scholarship

This endowment scholarship fund was established in 2007 by Mrs. Wolin as a memorial to her husband, John Wolin, who loved journalism and teaching young  journalists how to polish their craft. Wolin was a reporter and editor at the Miami Herald for 21 years, who inspired readers by chronicling his experiences as an achondroplastic dwarf.

This scholarship is offering $500.

  • A junior or senior student pursuing the Digital Journalism major in the Lee Caplin School of Journalism & Media during the award period.

  • submit a 2-page typewritten (double-spaced) essay about your career goals, reasons for choosing the profession, and where you would like to work in the future.
