Kranz media scholarship deadline is April 15

A scholarship honoring longtime South Dakota journalist David Kranz will be awarded this spring to a South Dakota journalism student.

The David Kranz-Argus Leader Media Scholarship recognizes Kranz's more than four-decade career as a reporter, editor and political columnist. He retired from the Argus Leader in 2010, and his career included time at The Daily Republic.

The $1,200 scholarship will be awarded annually to a South Dakota student who has completed at least one year in a journalism or media studies program at a South Dakota college or university.

The recipient must have achieved a 2.5 GPA in the previous semester and should submit examples of his or her writing as part of the application. A letter of recommendation from an academic or journalism professional is also required.

Students can e-mail application materials to: mdiehl@argu, or mail to: Michelle Diehl, Argus Leader, P.O. Box 5034, Sioux Falls, S.D., 57117-5034.

The deadline for applications is April 15.

A committee will select the winner and the scholarship will be awarded for the 2013-2014 school year.
