Reuters Graduate Fellowship

Reuters-NABJ Graduate Fellowship

The scholarship is limited to BER applicants. 

The mission of the Reuters Scholarship is to identify and rectify the under-representation of African-American, Hispanic, Native American, and Asian journalists in newsrooms across the country.There is value in people from all backgrounds being attuned to this lack of representation and the disparities, such as injustices  that may result from it. All are welcome to apply, regardless of identity or background.  Those with a demonstrated track record or established career goals that align with the mission of the Reuters Scholarship to address and rectify underrepresentation in newsrooms across the country are particularly encouraged to apply.

The Reuters Scholarship provides the following for a newly enrolled student (Fall 2024) in NYU’s Master of Arts concentration in Business and Economic Reporting:

*  A full scholarship for the Fall 2024 semester, including tuition, registration fees, health insurance and a stipend of approximately $16,000.

*  A tuition scholarship of approximately $3,000 for the Spring 2025 semester

*  A summer internship at Reuters

*  The recipient is eligible to apply for additional financial aid offered by NYU Journalism on a competitive basis to help fund additional tuition costs.

There are additional scholarships for which a student can be considered for the other semesters.
