NYU Journalism-NABJ Scholarship

NYU Journalism-NABJ Scholarship

The New York University Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute is proud to offer a new full-tuition scholarship to a National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) member admitted to one of the ten NYU Journalism graduate programs in the fall of 2021.

This full tuition scholarship is worth $70,000+.

The goal of the NYU Journalism-NABJ scholarship is to support an exceptional journalist who might not otherwise have the opportunity to earn a graduate journalism degree in one of our top-level NYU 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, and this scholarship is as well.
