The deadline for the 2020 scholarship application period has passed. Details for the 2021 scholarship application period will be announced in Spring 2021.
Each year before the end of April, new rules for the Walsh Award and the other ACES scholarships are posted on this page. Below are the rules and exercises for the 2020-21 competitions.
Applicants must be seeking degrees as enrolled college/university juniors, seniors, or graduate students during the summer and/or fall term in 2020. Scholarships are awarded without regard to the student’s major or field of academic concentration. Previous scholarship winners are not eligible.
The specifics for all six scholarships are below. Applications must be emailed by the end of Nov. 15. All entry materials must be in English.
The Bill Walsh scholarship will go to an applicant who aspires to edit news and who demonstrates the talent and passion for language that Bill devoted his life to.
Applicants for the other five scholarships should have a commitment to a career in the editing of written materials and demonstrate effectiveness in doing so.
By submitting a separate application for each, an entrant can seek both the Walsh and one of the other scholarships, but can win only one.
