 R.J. Reynolds Industries Expands Education Program Grants

  BALTIMORE-A scholarship program to support journalism education for black youths has been extended to twenty additional students over the next seven years by the program's sponsor, R.J. Reynolds Industries,Inc.

The R. J. Reynolds Scholarship Program in Journalism began in 1972 with a commitment to support 20 students and was extended to an additional 20 in 1977. With the expansion announced here, the corporations commitment to the program now exceeds $200,000, supporting 60 students.

In announcing expansion of the program, Reynolds Industries Vice President Marshall B. Bass told members of the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA), "we believe this program is making a significant contribution to the needs of black journalists and is preparing them to move into the mainstream of U. S. journalism.

"Graduates of the program are doing well and the students currently in training are representative of the high standards set by the NNPA," Bass said. Seventeen students have graduated and sixteen are currently in training, he reported. The NNPA Scholarship Foundation selects students for participation in the program.

"We believe this program is making progress in closing the gap between the needs of publishers and the number of black journalists available," Bass said. "Our renewal of support is based on the effectiveness of the program so far, and a sign of our faith in its continued success."
