2017 HAROLD GUNN SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS
When Harold Gunn, a member of the Texas Radio Hall of Fame, became president of the Texas Auto Writers Association, he was determined to create a scholarship fund that would help make paying for college easier for aspiring journalists.
Over the course of his multiple terms, he was instrumental in collecting enough money to ensure that future TAWA administrations could use the fund to benefit the writers of tomorrow.
TAWA works in conjunction with the Texas Intercollegiate Press Association (TIPA) to identify the best and brightest college journalism students in the State of Texas.
Applications are considered based on criteria listed and without regard to race, color, national origin, gender, disability, age or religion. Members or relatives of members of the Scholarship Selection Committee are not eligible.
Below are the most recent scholarship recipients.
