Milt Cole Memorial Scholarship
The Milt Cole Memorial Scholarship helps support students interested in a career in newspaper journalism. Students who completed an internship at The Daily Hampshire Gazette in Northampton in the fall or spring or who are planning one in the summer, may be eligible for financial support for expenses.
To be eligible, students must be a junior or senior Journalism major with a 3.0 GPA, or above. Priority will be given to students who are interested in pursuing a career in newspaper journalism and who have financial need.
Milt Cole was a sports writer and editor for The Daily Hampshire Gazette from 1969 to 1993. He died at age 69 and his friends and family set up this memorial to him. Milt’s great passions were the Boston Red Sox and the UMass men’s basketball team.
