The Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute sponsors workshops, learning initiatives, awards, and research projects, which are listed below.
These initiatives reflect our ongoing efforts to provide resources and opportunities to our students and the journalism community as a whole.
Black Male Journalism Workshop
In the summer of 2024, the New York University Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute in partnership with the Dow Jones News Fund will launch the Black Male Journalism Workshop. The mission of the workshop is to identify and rectify the under-representation of African-American males in newsrooms across the country.
GlobalBeat is the New York University Arthur L Carter Journalism Institute’s international in-field reporting program for Masters candidates. The class provides students with an immersive opportunity to travel overseas and report on topics including human rights, ethnicity, religion and international development.
Matthew Power Award
The Matthew Power Literary Reporting Award is a grant of $12,500 to support the work of a promising early-career nonfiction writer on a story that uncovers truths about the human condition. Offered for the first time in 2015, the Award has been endowed by individuals and organizations touched by the life and work of Matthew Power, a wide-roving and award-winning journalist who sought to live and share the experience of the individuals and places on which he was reporting.
Primary Sources is an online archive of conversations, distilled for the web into short video chapters. Curated links to online resources about all the subjects are in scrapbooks section and the works section has notes about their major work. The Primary Sources Library contains the full archive of conversations and supplemental material.
Top Ten / 100 Works
The Top Ten / 100 Works series is a collection of journalism honorees dating back to 1999, organized by Professor Mitchell Stephens. These lists celebrate high achievement in the field of journalism. Nominees were selected and reviewed by a panel of judges, along with faculty at the NYU Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute.
The Reporting Award
The award supports a work of journalism in any medium on significant underreported subjects in the public interest. The Reporting Award’s first recipient, Sarah Stillman, returned to Iraq — and made her first trip to Afghanistan — to pursue an investigative reporting project on the wars’ third-country nationals. The piece, published in the New Yorker, resulted in a change in federal legislation. Click here for more information on the award, or here for rules and how to apply.
Urban Journalism Workshop
The Urban Journalism Workshop at New York University is designed to encourage teens to consider a career in journalism. Twenty high school juniors and seniors from the New York City metropolitan area (the five boroughs of NYC in addition to New Jersey, Connecticut and Westchester) are selected to spend 10 days attending an intensive, rigorous multimedia course at the NYU Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute’s new state of the art facilities in Cooper Square.
