Eugene S. Pulliam School of Journalism


The Eugene S. Pulliam School of Journalism offers several scholarships to reward outstanding students for their contributions to campus journalism. Journalism scholarships include:

The Angelo Angelopoulous Award

This award was set up by friends of this alumnus and journalist and is presented to the student who has made the most outstanding contribution to campus journalism during the past year.

James T. and Georgianne D. Neal Journalism Scholarship

James ('42) and Georgianne have devoted a lifetime to the field of journalism, beginning with both being editors of the Butler Collegian. Their professional lives included the Noblesville (Ind.) Daily Ledger and the Indianapolis News. Aware of the need to preserve freedom of the press and the public's right to know, they established a scholarship fund at Butler to encourage entering freshmen to major in journalism, to participate in school publications and to develop the potential to sustain a career in the field of journalism.

Arthur Levin Scholarship For the First Amendment

This scholarship was established to honor Arthur Levin, who chaired the department of Journalism at Butler University from 1973 to 1997. Professor Levin started his career as a newspaper reporter for Stars and Stripes while serving in the Korean War and also wrote for The Chicago American before coming to Butler. He was inducted into the Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame in 2003. The award is granted annually to a sophomore, junior or senior student enrolled full-time in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, with a preference given to those students pursuing a journalism major. The student must be dedicated to the preservation of First Amendment liberties as demonstrated either through coursework or by work on editorial staffs of student-run print or electronic publications.

Additional Scholarships

Scholarships often become available throughout the year from additional funding sources outside and within Butler University.
