Daniel Schackman Memorial Fund for Students

Established in 2012 through the generosity of friends and family of Daniel Shackman to support the presentation work of Communication, Digital Media and Journalism and Journalism majors at academic conferences and in peer-reviewed and public competitions. The purpose of this fund is to reimburse the expenses of students who wish to present their academic work at a conference or submit their creative work for review or evaluation by a recognized organization.

This scholarship is open only students majoring or minoring in Communication or Digital Media and Journalism or Journalism whose work is a direct and immediate result of their studies.

Fall conference registration begins at the start of the fall term. Applications being accepted for Spring ’24 conference registrations, reimbursement will be provided with receipts after the trip has occurred. If you are traveling for a conference during the summer special conditions may apply – you may apply in spring for conferences occurring up to July 1st. For conferences scheduled after July 1st students should apply in the fall term. Students must be enrolled to receive reimbursement so funds for summer conferences may not be issued until the fall. Please contact npscholarships@newpaltz.edu if you have any questions.

To apply to this scholarship you must complete the conditional application that auto populates when you select Conference Travel in the General Application.
