The J. Edward Grimsley Fellowship for Journalism

Now retired, he is the former editor of the Richmond Times Dispatch and has won numerous awards from the Virginia Press Association.

  • Must dedicate a minimum of seven full-time weeks to the internship
  • Must not receive funding from other sources
  • Must be a continuing undergraduate student (i.e., not a graduating senior)
  • Applicants are responsible for securing their own internships
