Los Angeles-based Fisker – a manufacturer of revolutionary electric vehicles – and the Motor Press Guild (MPG) have created the annual Fisker-MPG Scholarship for Journalism. This scholarship awards $1,500 to a college student in pursuit of a journalism degree.
Fisker Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Henrik Fisker, made the announcement during an interview with MPG past President and board member, Amelia Dalgaard, at the MPG Virtual Media Day.
The MPG is also based in California, and claims its place as the largest automotive media association in North America. Their members include various journalists, photographers, governmental bodies, and more, all while upholding the highest automotive journalism ideals.
"What Fisker Inc. is doing in the automotive industry is nothing short of incredible and we are thrilled to have them as a partner for this journalism scholarship," said Amelia Dalgaard, past Motor Press Guild president and board member. "This generous support highlights Fisker’s commitment to helping develop future generations of journalists, and we are excited to be working with such a world-class organization."
"At a time when the very fundamentals of journalism are under constant attack, we must act to encourage and nurture future generations of story-tellers," said Fisker Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Henrik Fisker. "The Motor Press Guild has long stood for excellence in journalism through its dedication to covering the automotive industry. We are proud to partner with MPG to create this scholarship, and to encourage future generations of journalists to discover the depth and breadth of the automotive industry."
