Get Free Money for your Chapter Event!

For the second consecutive year, the Region 1 Fund is offering quarterly grants of up to $500 to help professional and student chapters recruit speakers, book space and promote events. This is in addition to the national chapter grants that SPJ national offers:

Over the past year, Region 1 Grants were awarded to The College at Brockport to produce a Western New York Media Conference and to the Keystone Pro chapter to purchase the documentary “A Fragile Trust” for screening events with local college chapters.

The deadlines for quarterly funding are as follows: Nov. 21, 2014; Feb. 21, 2015; May 21, 2015; Aug. 21, 2015
