Brian Doyle Humor Scholarships

Brian Doyle winking

You could earn a scholarship for your sense of humor! No joke — you could earn one of five $3,333 Brian Doyle Scholarships in Gentle & Sidelong Humor for students who propose a way to bring some laughs to The Bluff.

The Brian Doyle Scholarships in Gentle & Sidelong Humor were established in 2012 by John and Patricia Beckman. To honor Brian, the Beckmans developed this scholarship to help foster an intentional way for students to seek and present the joys, hilarity, and surprises that can be discovered when not being too serious while learning.

The project can be anything — videos, comic books, comedy nights, websites, performances, graphic novels, you name it! — but it must be something that is presented, published or posted publicly.

Check this site in early March for details on how and when to apply. UP freshman, sophomores and juniors are eligible. Let your humor run wild!
