The annual Jay Kennedy Memorial Scholarship, in memory of the late

King Features editor, was funded by an initial $100,000 grant from the

Hearst Foundation/King Features Syndicate and additional generous

donations from Jerry Scott, Jim Borgman, Patrick McDonnell and many

other prominent cartoonists. Submissions are adjudicated by a panel of

top cartoonists and an award is given to the best college cartoonist.

The recipient is feted at the annual NCS Reuben Awards Convention

attended by many of the world’s leading cartoonists.
