Diversity Conference Attendance Grants

NYU Journalism is awarding multiple grants, up to $1000 each, to current NYU graduate and undergraduate students seeking to participate in conferences or educational programs outside NYU that explore the social, economic, or political challenges facing marginalized communities. Students may also use the funds to attend NABJ, NAHJ, or AAJA conferences. The grants are designed to cover conference fees and other conference-related expenses. Funds may be used for travel. International travel is subject to NYU’s Covid-19 travel policies.


Open to both NYU graduate and undergraduate journalism students. To be eligible to apply:

  • Graduate students must be enrolled in an NYU Journalism masters program.
  • Undergraduate students should be declared journalism majors or minors.
