Diversity Reporting Grants

NYU Journalism is offering fifteen (15) grants of up to $1,000 each to graduate or undergraduate students who are working on substantive reporting projects in any medium that explore the social, economic, or political challenges facing marginalized communities.

The grants are designed to support research costs associated with reporting these stories. 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:
