  Richmond Journalism Student Wins White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) Scholarship
May 1, 2022

A Richmond CA journalism student at UC Berkley, Maria Fernanda Bernal, was named one of the 2022 winners of scholarships by the Whitehouse Correspondents’ Association, which sponsored the White House Correspondents Dinner, headlining President Biden and Trevor Noah, last night.

The students were featured at a luncheon and program in their honor in Washington on April 29 and were guests of the WHCA at its annual dinner on April 30. Since the WHCA began giving scholarships in 1991, it has awarded more than $1.6 million in grants and leveraged another $1.3 million in aid. The WHCA scholarships are financed by proceeds from the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner and tax-deductible contributions to the WHCA.
