Applications for the Union Leader Charitable Fund Inc.'s 2014 Loeb Educational Grant are now available at www.unionleader.com/loebgrant.
The $5,000 prize was named for William and Nackey S. Loeb, the late publishers of the New Hampshire Union Leader and New Hampshire Sunday News.
The Loebs worked tirelessly to sustain the autonomy of New Hampshire's largest daily newspaper, and this year's grant will go to the person who best exemplifies their spirit of independence and journalistic integrity.
High school seniors as well as current college students, regardless of age, are encouraged to apply. The application deadline is April 1.
The Loeb Educational Grant is open to any individual who has been a New Hampshire resident for at least two years and plans to attend a post-secondary education program.
