The application process has closed for this year and judging is underway! Check back soon for the announcement of the 2017 Young Leaders Scholarship winners.

The ASBPE Young Leaders Scholarship has been created to foster interest in the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE) by younger B2B editors, designers, and videographers who are advancing in their editorial careers. The scholarship is sponsored annually by ASBPE, and allows younger editors, designers, and videographers – who might otherwise be unable – to attend the ASBPE National Conference. The 2017 conference will be this summer at the Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Fla. The conference contains editorial sessions and the ASPBE National Awards Banquet.

The YLS scholarships are open to all business editors, including print and Web, as well as B2B designers and videographers. Scholarships pay the conference registration fees and hotel room costs for the winners. Transportation to and from the conference, any non-conference meals, and other incurred costs are the responsibility of the winners or their publishing companies.

Applicants must meet the following qualifications:
> Be 30 years of age or younger (on or about February 1, 2017)
> Have worked at least two years in an editorial capacity at a business-to-business publication
> Be sponsored by their publication’s chief editor
> Plan to continue in the business press as a career
> Not be a previous ASBPE Young Leaders Scholarship winner
