Conference Attendance Grants

NYU Journalism is awarding twenty (20) grants of up to $500 each to current NYU graduate and undergraduate students seeking to participate in online educational programs outside NYU that explore the social, economic, or political challenges facing marginalized communities.

The grants are designed to cover conference fees and other conference-related expenses. (Please note, however, that because of temporary restrictions related to the pandemic, students cannot use these funds to support travel at this time).


NYU graduate and undergraduate students. To be eligible to apply, graduate students must be enrolled in an NYU Journalism masters program, whereas undergraduate students should be declared journalism majors or minors.
