At the San Antonio Association of Hispanic Journalists, our mission is simple: get more Latinos in to the journalism, communications and public relations fields.

Every year our nonprofit organization awards thousands of dollars in scholarships to students to pursue their education. Last year, we gave a total of $40,000 to 11 students attending the University of Texas at Austin, Trinity University, University of the Incarnate Word, Texas A&M University-San Antonio and University of North Texas.

Applications for our 2023 scholarships are now open. Please apply or share this email!
