Joseph Sicherman Award Fund

The Joseph Sicherman Award Fund was created in memory of Joseph H. Sicherman in 1990 by Alan K.Sicherman with a matching donation from Cowles Media Company and further contributions from friends and family.

Preference in selection goes to students in news editorial journalism who demonstrate academic merit and potential for success in the field.

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.
