For more than a decade, ASBPE has recognized future leaders in the B2B press with the Young Leader Scholarship. This year, the scholarship covers a two-night hotel stay and the registration for five YLS winners to attend ASPBE’s National Editorial Conference May 10-11 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
The judges selected the winners based on their résumés, clips, recommendation letters from their chief editors, and their essays on how they became involved in the business press, their biggest challenges as business-to-business editors, and their future career goals.
Scholarship winners must be 30 years old or younger, worked for at least two years as an editor at a business magazine or associated Web publication, be sponsored by their chief editor, and plan to continue in the business press as a career.
The winners of the 2018 scholarship are as follows:
