Christina Thompson Matthias Journalism Scholarship Fund

The C. T. Matthias Journalism Scholarship Fund was established in 1982 by Michael Matthias, with later gifts from his father Franklin Matthias, to honor his grandmother Christina Thompson Matthias who wrote for a small town newspaper.

FAFSA required prior to awarding decisions. Preference in selection goes to either a junior or senior; a graduate of a rural Wisconsin public high school; and on the journalism track with an interest in news/editorial journalism and a dedication to accurate reporting of the news.

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.
