INQUIRER JOURNALISM SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

Aside from the scholarship grant given to the newsboys, Inquirer also offers scholarship program to journalism students with exceptional grades and talent for writing.

The journalism scholarship program, founded in 1993 has helped outstanding journalism students from five top universities: University of the Philippines Diliman, University of Santo Tomas, Ateneo de Manila University, UP Los Baños, and University of the East.

Scholarships are given every other year to at least five students starting on their third year in college. Once chosen, scholars get a stipend every year. And to further improve their skills and to be trained more, they are given the opportunity to work for the Inquirer for at least 2 years after graduation.

Many of these scholars are now working as Inquirer reporters or editors. Others are known to be popular in their own fields.

Joining the 67 Inquirer Journalism Scholarship graduates since 1993 are: Journalism juniors Krixia Subingsubing, Jennifer Cabildo and Matthew Reysio-Cruz of the University of the Philippines-Diliman; Creative Writing junior Jamela Ariella Braganza of the University of the Philippines-Diliman; and Communications senior Fazniyara Lukman of Ateneo de Zamboanga University.
