Applications are currently being taken for the Louis Azrael Fellowship in Communications, three one-year $5000 scholarships for Johns Hopkins sophomores or juniors interested in pursuing careers in news-related media (print or internet journalism, radio, television, or other kinds of news communication).

The Fellowship honors the memory of Louis Azrael (1904-1981), a nationally known columnist for the former Baltimore News American newspaper. Azrael was a Baltimore newsman for nearly sixty years and was distinguished for his work during World War II, especially for his account of the D-Day invasion.

The Fellowship is given through The Writing Seminars Department and will be judged by Professor Shannon Robinson.

Applicants should submit a representative collection of relevant work (at least 3 and no more than 10 examples), preferably material that has been published or broadcasted, along with a brief biography and a one-page statement about current and future interests in news media. Applications should be emailed to Srobin73@jhu.edu by 5PM on April 15, 2022. You may submit scanned versions of your published work. For more information, please contact Professor Robinson.
