NYU Journalism-NAJA Scholarship

NYU Journalism-NAJA Scholarship

The New York University Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute offers a full-tuition plus stipend scholarship to a Native American Journalism Associate member admitted to one of the ten NYU Journalism graduate programs in the fall of 2022.

This full tuition plus stipend scholarship covers tuition estimated at $25,000 plus a $10,000 stipend, as well as registration and service fees per semester for the entire program of choice (3 or 4 semesters, as many credits as required).

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

The goal of the NYU Journalism-NAJA 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 Native American Journalism Association (NAJA) must be submitted at the time of accepting the fellowship award. Applicants may join NAJA upon receiving the offer. Please note that membership in the NAJA is open to individuals of all racial backgrounds. This scholarship is available to all members who are US citizens or permanent residents.
