The White House Correspondents’ Association is pleased to announce our college scholarship winners for 2024, an impressive and promising group of talented young journalists from a record 16 colleges and universities around the country.

The students will be featured at a luncheon and program in their honor in Washington on April 26 and will be guests of the WHCA at its annual dinner on April 27.

The WHCA will award $133,000 in grants this year, an increase from last year. Its scholarship grants also are leveraging another $56,000 this year in other aid.

With the 2024 grants, the WHCA has awarded more than $2 million in scholarships, and leveraged another $1.5 million in additional aid and grants.

“While the work of the White House Correspondents ’Association serves history each day through reporting that documents our times, our association is also deeply concerned about the legacy of journalism itself. That commitment drives our support of the next generation of reporters, producers and visual journalists through scholarships and mentoring,” said Kelly O’Donnell, president of the WHCA.

“Our student scholars represent the energy, curiosity and creativity of young content creators who have excelled in their studies and will chart their own paths in professional reporting. As institutions everywhere face crises in public confidence, our student scholars bring a fresh perspective and a desire to better understand the world around them. WHCA is proud that our association with the help of our donors extends a hand and opens a door for these young achievers. Join us with your gift to WHCA to promote these talented students.”

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