The Deadline for the Edgell & Littleford Scholarship has been extended to FEBRUARY 20

Every year, the Business Press Educational Foundation (BPEF) awards the Robert L. Edgell Scholarship and the William Littleford Scholarship to two students from Pace University’s M.S. in Publishing program who demonstrate an understanding of—and interest in—the business-to-business (B2B) media industry.

These scholarships are $1000 each, paid directly to selected students at the Spring M.S. in Publishing Advisory Board meeting on March 8, 2018.

To apply, interested students must submit their application to Professor Denning (jdenning@pace.edu) at 551 Fifth Avenue, Room 805F, no later than 5pm on February 20, 2018.
