Call for applicants: the Louis Azrael fellowship in communications

Applications are currently being taken for the Louis Azrael fellowship in communications, three one-year $5000 scholarships for students interested in pursuing careers in news-related media such as 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 Wayne Biddle.

Applicants must be Johns Hopkins sophomores or juniors. They should submit a representative collection of relevant work, preferably material that has been published or broadcasted, along with a brief biography and statement about current and future interests in news media. Applications are due by 3PM on Monday, April 1, 2019, at the writing seminars office in Gilman 081. For more information, please contact professor Biddle at
