Scholarships to go to Y., U., USU, WSU students

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- William James Mortimer, the publisher of Deseret News, recently announced the establishment of endowed scholarships for print journalism at four Utah universities. The announcement came at the banquet celebrating the 150th anniversary of the newspaper.

$150,000 will be divided equally between the University of Utah, Brigham Young University, Utah State University, and Weber State University. Each school will receive $37,500. The endowment will be permanent, and five percent will be awarded to recipients each year.

Deseret News editors will select recipients based on recommendations from the university faculties. Those eligible will have demonstrated excellence in the field of print journalism, and will have at least one more year of college to finish. Each will receive a $500 cash award, summer employment, and the scholarship money that will be applied toward tuition.

Those who are selected to receive this honor will be named Deseret News Scholars. Names of all recipients will be recorded on a plaque at the Deseret News building.
