NYU Journalism-NABJ, NAHJ, and NAJA Scholarships

The Journalism Institute offers a full-tuition plus stipend scholarship to a NABJ, NAHJ, NAJA association member admitted to one of the ten NYU Journalism graduate programs in the fall of 2022.

NYU Journalism’s NABJ, NAHJ, and NAJA Scholarships cover:

  • Tuition estimated at $25,000
  • A $10,000 stipend
  • Registration and service fees per semester for the entire program of choice (3 or 4 semesters, as many credits as required for the degree).

Eligible candidates must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, and be a member of the NABJ, NAHJ, or NAJA.

The goal of the NYU Journalism-NABJ, NAHJ, and NAJA scholarship is to support an exceptional student who might not otherwise have the opportunity to study  in one of our prestigious  graduate journalism programs:

New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute is a pioneer in educating today’s journalists. Not confined by the traditional structure that defines most journalism schools, our small cohort size allows for a deeper, more personalized experience. And NYU Journalism programs emphasize the critical thinking skills so important when covering a complex, interrelated world. All of this adds up to the perfect combination of skills and mastery of content.

The strength of NYU’s journalism program stems from the accomplishments of our faculty, who are at the top of their fields. Our professors author books on important contemporary topics. They publish in the most prestigious papers, magazines, and reviews. And they produce award-winning documentaries and broadcast news specials for major media outlets. NYU professors are much more than just mentors—they are deeply invested in their students’ success as future journalists.

Interested candidates only need to complete the regular NYU Journalism application.

Proof of membership in the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) must be submitted at the time of accepting the fellowship award. Applicants may join NABJ upon receiving the offer. Please note that membership in the NABJ is open to individuals of all racial backgrounds. This scholarship is available to all members who are US citizens or permanent residents.
