Full Scholarships for Programmers-Developers to Study Journalism at Northwestern

Professor Rich Gordon blogged yesterday on IdeaLab (the group blog of Knight News Challenge winners), about six open full scholarships for programmers to study journalism at Medill School at Northwestern University.

The entire post is here, and Gordon asks for thoughts about the scholarship pitch and the concept in general. Commenters are weighing in about how to increase applicants and how to promote the opportunity.

What do you think? How could we increase applications for these full scholarships for programmers and developers to study journalism at Northwestern?
