SETON HALL

With alumni like Bob Ley, Dick Vitale and Bill Rafferty calling national games and working for the likes of ESPN, great minds from Seton Hall are already well represented in the world of sports journalism. But that presence is about to get even bigger.Seton Hall is launching a new Sports Media program to be led by veteran journalist B.J. Schecter, former executive editor of Sports Illustrated and SI.com. The interdisciplinary program will be part of the College of Communications and the Arts, and will incorporate the expertise and resources of several University programs, including the Center for Sport Management and the Seton Hall Sports Poll.

LEARN MORE
Schecter, a member of Seton Hall's Professionals-in-Residence Program, has more than 25 years of experience in sports media, and is currently the editorial director for Baseball America. He will not only design and lead the new program, but help organize symposia, conferences and roundtable discussions related to sports.Like our other academic programs, hands-on learning will be key component of Sports Media. Aspiring journalists will hone their reporting skills at The Setonian, our award-winning student newspaper, and produce shows and announce on air for WSOU, our #1-ranked college radio station in the country. Students also have access to more than 17,000 internship opportunities at employers like ABC, NBC, SportsNet New York and The New York Times.With opportunities like this, there's no limit to what great minds can do in the world of sports. Encourage your students to apply to Seton Hall today!

Exciting news for your rising senior girls! They may now apply for a travel grant to attend Discover Wellesley Weekend on Sunday, October 15, and Monday, October 16.
 
Who is it for?
Wellesley encourages applicants from underrepresented cultural backgrounds such as African American, Asian American, Hispanic/Latina American, Native American; first-generation students; and/or students from other underrepresented communities. The travel grant selection committee will also prioritize inviting students from families with limited financial resources, regardless of cultural or racial background. The above-mentioned are priorities, but are not meant to imply any exclusivity regarding the program or the selection process
What’s free?
Transportation, meals, and housing. Family members are welcome to attend Discover Wellesley Weekend, but the grant only covers travel for the student
How do students apply?
The priority application deadline is June 30; the final deadline is August 15.
1. For details on how to apply: www.wellesley.edu/admission/falltravelgrant.
2. Students are encouraged to report SAT or ACT test scores and must submit a copy of their unofficial transcript (grades 9-11) and a statement of purpose along with their application.
As a counselor, what can you do?
Please pass this information to any rising senior you think is a good fit for Wellesley and may need financial assistance to attend Discover Wellesley Weekend. We are looking for engaging, bright, and academically driven women who are interested in discovering Wellesley’s diverse and inclusive community. We give preference to students who have not yet visited. Last year, we received nearly 600 applications for a total of 100 available grants, and we hope to offer as many grants this fall. We try to distribute the funds to get a diverse geographic mix of students.

You are welcome to email me with the names of your students who will be applying for the travel grant, so I can keep an eye out for their applications.
A second chance
Due to limited funding, we may not be able to award grants to all qualified students. If they aren’t awarded a grant at this time, we hope you will still encourage them to apply. Our application is free when submitted through the Common Application, the Coalition Application, or the QuestBridge National Match Application, so they have nothing to lose! We offer additional travel grants for our Spring Open Campus program for admitted students in April.


For more information and frequently asked questions, please review our travel grant webpage.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at 
travelgrant@wellesley.edu. Thanks for spreading the word!
