Application: Farrell Fellow scholarship for journalism/communications majors

Farrell Fellows Academic Scholarship

The Community Foundation of Grundy County is excited to launch a new program called "Farrell Fellows" to honor the career of Mike Farrell, former board trustee and career journalist. Each year, one Farrell Fellow will be selected and awarded with one $10,000 academic scholarship to complete their degree. Farrell Fellow applicants will be Grundy County, IL, university students entering junior or senior year in the fall, and majoring in communications, journalism, or similar field. Each scholarship recipient will be required to "give back" to Grundy County in a manner that is acceptable to both the student and CFGC. This will be on a case-by-case basis and determined during the application and interview phase. Applications are due by April 1, 2023, and notification of award will be announced no later than May 15, 2023. The check will be mailed to the college financial aid office in early August.
