University of Missouri School of Journalism graduate student Rashi Shrivastava of Pune, India, recently received a $6,500 Carol Loomis Scholarship for Business Reporting.
“My interest in working for a magazine and writing long-form articles piqued after reading articles in Fortune magazine, written by Mizzou alumna Carol Loomis, whose determination and confidence paved the way for other women journalists in the business world,” Shrivastava said.
The scholarship honors Loomis’ 60 years of work at Fortune and her role in blazing the trail for women in journalism. She retired in 2014 as senior editor-at-large and Fortune’s longest-tenured employee.
