The Robert G. McGruder Student Award for Diversity

This award honors Robert G. McGruder, a 1963 Kent State graduate and leader in the area of diversity in journalism, and recognizes work published or broadcast in print or online in a Student Media outlet, other professional media outlets such as an internship, or as part of a JMC classroom assignment. The award is not discipline specific.

The number of winners to be recognized will be chosen by members of the JMC Diversity & Globalization committee each year.

This award is open to undergraduates and graduate students working in a JMC class, JMC internship or student media outlet for work done during the contest period. The entrant must have done the majority of the work on the project to be considered.

Nominations are open for the 2020 award (for work completed January 2019 through December 31, 2019) through Jan. 13, 2020, and can be sent to Kevin Dilley, Director of Student Media, at kdilley@kent.edu
