Memorial Scholarship for 2015
This scholarship – valued at $2,000 – was created by the family of Richard
Drukker, former publisher of the Passaic Herald News. The Drukker endowment fund
restricts the scholarships to Montclair State
University journalism students.
The scholarship is open to any Montclair student
who is a journalism minor and/or on the staff of The Montclarion.
Students who received a New Jersey Press Foundation scholarship or internship
last year are not eligible for this year's Drukker scholarship.
The scholarship will be presented at Montclair
English Department's annual awards event in May.
Richard Drukker helped create New Jersey Press Foundation as a way of promoting
journalism careers among talented young people in the state. As a trustee of the
foundation, he was instrumental in forging a relationship with the New York
Giants football club, which annually contributed to the foundation a portion of
its income from a pre-season game.
The application deadline is
Friday, April 3, 2015 at 3 p.m.
The application form
for the 2015 Richard Drukker Memorial Scholarship will be available soon.
