Attendance at a 501C (non-profit) university is mandatory, academics, educational and vocational aspirations, financial need and involvement in journalism are also considered in the selection process. Each regional association ultimately chooses one candidate for consideration by the Margaret Sanders Foundation. Each AASSA member school may nominate one candidate, whose application must reach AASSA by Friday, December 8, 2014.
