About the Grant

The Phillip Martin Puntney and Amanda Sue Puntney Journalism Grant will be awarded annually to a Kansas High School Journalism Program to assist in the furtherance of scholastic journalism education and press freedom. Recipients of the grant will apply for the funds to fulfill a need in the program that would advance the education, experience and skills of Kansas student journalists and/or publication advisers.

The requests will be evaluated by the board of the Puntney Endowment, which will have board members, including representation from the Kansas Scholastic Press Association, the Journalism Education Association and the National Scholastic Press Association.
