Wal-Mart Funds J-School Students

Seems perennial bad-publicity magnet Wal-Mart is trying to burnish its public image by creating scholarships at various J-Schools, including our humble outpost in Morningside Heights. Of course, it would be simplistic and crass to suggest that Wal-Mart is trying to buy good press coverage.

And earlier this month, Wal-Mart announced plans to award $500,000 in scholarships to minority students at journalism programs around the country, including Howard University, University of Southern California and Columbia University.
