Esther Rose Goodman Prize for Excellence in Journalism Fund
The Esther Rose Goodman Prize for Excellence in Journalism is awarded annually to an upper level undergraduate student of good academic standing in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication for the best journalistic reporting that year.
FAFSA required prior to awarding decisions. Preference in selection is given to juniors or seniors who have a minimum 3.0 GPA in journalism and are on the journalism track with an emphasis on news editorial journalism.
About the process: Students do not apply for individual scholarships with the School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Students fill out one application and the scholarship committee matches students to awards. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need, academics, study area and involvement. Visit our website for more information about our undergraduate scholarship program and accessing our application.

This fund was established in 1981 by Esther Rose Goodman’s sisters, Jennie Rimsay and Lenell Ammerman, for their late sister who wished to study journalism at the University, but died while still in high school.
