The Society of Professional Journalists’ Sigma Delta Chi Foundation has made a $100,000 grant to the National Conference of Editorial Writers Foundation’s Minority Writers Seminar.
More than 130 journalists have attended the annual seminar, which is designed to help in the recruitment and retention of minorities as editorial and opinion writers. The seminar — begun nine years ago — is hosted by the Freedom Forum-First Amendment Center at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn.
The $100,000 grant will be disbursed over five years.
