The White House Correspondents’ Association is pleased to announce its college scholarship winners for 2023, with students coming from 14 colleges and universities around the country.

“These journalism students are the future of our profession,” said Tamara Keith, president of the WHCA. “I look forward to someday soon sitting in the briefing room with them and cheering on their success.”

The students will be featured at a luncheon and program in their honor in Washington on April 28 and will be guests of the WHCA at its annual dinner on April 29.

The WHCA will award $131,500 in grants this year, the second-largest such outlay in the program’s history. It is leveraging nearly $50,000 this year in other aid as well.

Since the WHCA began giving scholarships in 1991, it has awarded more than $1.7 million in grants and leveraged another $1.4 million in aid.

The WHCA scholarships are financed by proceeds from the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner and tax-deductible contributions to the WHCA.
