Why your support is vital

Studying journalism in college isn't something you do for the money, or for the prestige, or for the cushy work hours.  You pursue journalism because you're passionate about truth and eager to tell the stories of your state, town, neighborhood, or even your own family.

In the country's current economic situation, when so many students and their families are struggling, we at the Houston chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists feel a special obligation to help the next generation of journalists.

We started the Susanne Pagano scholarship five years ago, shortly after Susanne, a colleague and chapter officer, passed away suddenly.  It's more than just a scholarship to us; it's a way of helping students carry forward Susanne's work.  We offer a $1000 scholarship to an eligible student, to be applied against their tuition costs. The scholarship fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization; your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Whatever you can give will help a student achieve his or her goals.  For more details about the scholarship, please visit our website here.
