Peggy Peterman scholarship for minority students
Peggy Mitchell Peterman was an award-winning reporter, columnist and editorial writer at the St. Petersburg Times (now the Tampa Bay Times) for 31 years. She mentored young journalists at the Times and other newspapers. In 1989, she received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Association of Black Journalists.
To honor Peggy, the Time is pleased to offer a $5,000 scholarship to an undergraduate or graduate minority who is committed to a career in journalism. The winning student also will spend the summer as one of our news interns.
To apply, fill out an application form and check the box that you are applying for the Peggy Peterman scholarship. The deadline to apply is Nov. 1.
