  • Scholarship Description
  • The public depends on news that is investigated, researched and reported by dedicated professionals. Good journalism requires talent, drive and a genuine interest in understanding the “total picture” and what is most important. Diversity among journalists, especially in a region such as the San Francisco Bay Area, plays a crucial role in ensuring a comprehensive and balanced presentation of the news. Because Filipinos are underrepresented in journalism, Mona Lisa Yuchengco, the founder of Filipinas Magazine, established this scholarship program to support students of Filipino heritage pursuing careers in journalism.
