K-State Student From Abilene Recipient of Scholarship Award

Kansas State UniversityMay 6, 2020

A K-State Student from Abilene is recognized in the A.Q. Miller School of Journalism with a scholarship.

Bailey Short, senior in journalism and mass communications, has been awarded the Ehrsam Memorial Scholarship.

“The A.Q. Miller School has a long, proud history of providing media education, a tradition that began in 1910, when a journalism program was created to serve the state’s growing media industry,” said Steve Smethers, the director of the A.Q. Miller School. “Through the years, grateful alumni have remembered us well with their financial support. In fact, we award among the highest level of scholarships in the entire College of Arts and Sciences.”

Smethers said the university shutdown during the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of the annual scholarship banquet, a longstanding tradition.

The 110-year-old program awards bachelor’s degrees in advertising, journalism and public relations, as well as resident master’s degrees focused in community journalism or health communication, and an online master’s program in strategic communications.
