Clark R. Mollenhoff Award
The Clark R. Mollenhoff Award supports a variety of journalistic projects, including an internship. W&L juniors who are declared majors in Journalism or Business Journalism may apply.
The nature of the proposed projects is virtually limitless — a summer internship as a reporter or with an organization such as Investigative Reporters and Editors or the Reporters’ Committee for Freedom of the Press; trips to perform interviews or do research for an Honors paper; travel to investigate and write on an issue of public importance; doing research for an investigative reporter. Ideally, the award would make possible a worthy project that otherwise could not be undertaken, and the project would be undertaken before the recipient graduated.
