Christianity Today’s first religious journalism fellowship award winner is Edward H. Pitts of Syracuse, New York, who will be one of ten select scholars admitted in September to the first class at the new Washington Journalism Center. The $2,000 CHRISTIANITY TODAY award applies to travel, housing, and other expenses. Mr. Pitts will study without tuition charges and will be assigned to this magazine for practical assignments. An alumnus of Aurora College (B.S., M.A.), he will graduate next month from Syracuse University School of Journalism.

Applicants for the second semester award should write immediately.
