A Lew Klein Scholarship Makes An Impact on Senior Joshua Combos

Joshua Combos, a senior studying Media Studies and Production at Temple University’s School of Media and Communication (SMC), said his Lew Klein Scholarship allowed him to study away in Los Angeles and complete an internship for Fox Sports and “The Travis Smiley Show” on PBS. “I was able to jump-start my career while still in school. My internship and connections would have never happened without the scholarship,” he said.

The Lew Klein Scholarship Fund was established in 2000 by Gerry and Marguerite Lenfest and Walter and Leonore Annenberg. The scholarship supports students who want to pursue internships, research projects or study away. Proceeds from SMC’s annual Lew Klein Alumni in the Media Awards directly benefit the Scholarship Fund, defraying tuition costs so that students can pursue study away and internship opportunities that prepare them for the real world.

Make a gift to the Lew Klein Scholarship Fund.
