Abelson Endowed Scholarship in Business Journalism


Business journalism is one of the fastest-growing sectors in the profession, with a recent study revealing that average starting annual salaries for practitioners is $74,000. Abelson was a prominent business journalist and writer of the influential Up and Down Wall Street column in Barron’s Magazine.

Recipients will each receive a financial award during their final year of undergraduate study or, in the case of 3+1 students, as part of their final academic year at Quinnipiac. Two students will be selected each year, and each will receive the $15,000 Alan Abelson Endowed Scholarship Award.

The Abelson Scholarship cannot be combined with any form of gift aid (grants, scholarships, tuition benefits/waivers, etc.) in excess of the annual cost of tuition and fees for the academic year at Quinnipiac University. This award is not applicable toward housing, meal plans, books, travel, health insurance, or other educational costs.
