Applications for the 2010 Ralph Flamminio Memorial Scholarship, one of the most prestigious journalism scholarships available in Pennsylvania, will be accepted until April 15, according to the Pennsylvania Associated Press Managing Editors who make the annual selection. The winner will receive a $3,000 cash award and be presented with the scholarship at the PAPME's annual conference in May in Harrisburg.

The award, which has been given annually for the past several decades, is named after Flamminio, the former Allentown Morning Call and Coatesville Record editor. Flamminio was known for building a spirit of cooperation that has become the hallmark of the Pennsylvania Associated Press Managing Editors. Prior to his death in 1986, Ralph was a champion for a close association of Pennsylvania newspapers. He believed PAPME could strengthen the network of newspapers and enrich its content by making stories more relevant to readers through contributions to the Associated Press.

Applicants for the award must be Pennyslvania residents and attend a four-year institution. While candidates do not have to be journalism majors, they should be determined to pursue a career in journalism.

To apply, students should submit a cover letter describing experience in print journalism, interest in the field and what they might contribute to the craft as a journalist, a college transcript, up to five clips and a letter of recommendation from a faculty member or other professional.

Applications can be sent to Larry Holeva, PAPME Scholarship Chairman, c/o The Citizens' Voice, 75 N. Washington St., Wilkes-Barre, Pa. 18711.
