Middlebury College student wins journalism scholarship

WOBURN, Mass. — A Middlebury College senior and former Addison Independent intern has won a prestigious scholarship from a regional news organization.
Sarah Asch of Mill Valley, Calif., was one of five students who were recently named recipients of the Journalism Education Foundation of New England’s 2019 scholarships. This year, $2,000 scholarships will be awarded to four collegiate students and one high school student; in addition to Asch the other winners are Jenna Ciccotelli, Methuen, Mass.; Alexandre Silberman, Burlington, Vt.; Allison Marianna Cross, Monroe, Conn.; and Hailey Bryant, Orono, Maine.
Asch was an intern at the Independent this past winter, and wrote a number of general news stories and a three-part series looking at what the shrinking percentage of younger people in Vermont means to the future of the Green Mountain State.
The Journalism Education Foundation of New England, a division of the New England Newspaper & Press Association, encourages and supports high school seniors and college students in the six-state region who aspire to pursue a career in journalism.
The JEFNE scholarship is available to residents of New England. Applicants must be a college student or high school senior planning to attend college the following year to study journalism or a related field.
