SAAHJ is dedicated to helping Latinos and young professionals of all backgrounds pursue their careers in journalism and other areas of the communications sector. Every year, we help advance these endeavors by awarding tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships to deserving students at our annual scholarship gala.

Thanks to a partnership with the San Antonio Area Foundation, SAAHJ now has an online scholarship application system.

Scholarship applicants will now register on the Area Foundation website. Once they have created an account and logged in, they can fill out their scholarship application at their own pace and save their work until they are ready to submit it.


DEADLINE: Applications must be submitted by Friday, March 9, 2018

A panel of five media and public relations professionals will evaluate the applications. Winners will be notified in late April and featured at the SAAHJ gala on Saturday, August 11, 2018.

Questions about the online scholarship system can be directed to Bernice Uresti with the San Antonio Area Foundation at or Cadence Corbin at or by calling either of them at (210) 225-2243.
