The Oklahoma Scholastic Media Initiative (OSMI) provides grants to secondary schools across Oklahoma to start or improve online publications.
The grant awards are divided into two categories: those for startup of new online publications and those intended to improve existing online publications.
Grants for each category are limited to $3,500. Beyond funding, grant recipients will attend a mandatory five-day workshop designed to facilitate advisers in carrying out their planned program. Workshop content will include general guidelines specific to creation of online publications as well as refreshers on more common topics in journalism education (writing, interviewing, photography, etc.). The grant program covers all costs of the workshop.
