The journalism scholarship program, founded in 1993 has helped outstanding journalism students from five top universities: University of the Philippines Diliman, University of Santo Tomas, Ateneo de Manila University, UP Los Baños, and University of the East. Aside from the scholarship grant given to the newsboys, Inquirer also offers scholarship program to journalism students with exceptional grades and talent for writing.
Scholarships are given every other year to at least five students starting on their third year in college. Once chosen, scholars get a stipend every year. And to further improve their skills and to be trained more, they are given the opportunity to work for the Inquirer for at least 2 years after graduation.
Many of these scholars are now working as Inquirer reporters or editors. Others are known to be popular in their own fields.
