Anne O’Hare McCormick Memorial Scholarship

The Anne O’Hare McCormick Memorial Scholarship honors the legacy of Anne O’Hare McCormick of The New York Times, who in 1937 was the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for foreign correspondence. The McCormick Fund was created in 1954 as a posthumous tribute by McCormick’s colleagues in the Newswomen’s Club of New York.

The scholarship is awarded to female U.S. citizens who have been admitted to an accredited New York-based graduate journalism program leading to a degree. Applicants must show evidence of both journalistic talent and financial need. All applications, clippings and broadcast work must be submitted in English. This scholarship is open to full-time and part-time students.
