New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute has teamed up with the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ), the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ), and the Native American Journalism Association (NAJA) to offer full-tuition scholarships beginning in the fall of 2021.
The scholarships, each worth in excess of $70,000, will each “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,” the institute announced.
“It’s vitally important to bring more diversity to our classrooms and to news organizations around the country,” says Professor Stephen D. Solomon, interim director of the Carter Journalism Institute.
“Our faculty has sought new ways to support talented students, and establishing these new scholarships is a part of this plan,” adds Jason Samuels, an associate professor and director of graduate studies at the Carter Journalism Institute. “NYU Journalism is proud to be working closely with our partners NAHJ, NABJ, and NAJA in creating this new opportunity for deserving students.”
To be eligible for the NYU Journalism-NABJ, NYU Journalism-NAHJ, and NYU Journalism-NAJA scholarships, funded by the university, applicants must be a member of that scholarship’s association partner. Memberships in the NABJ, NAHJ, and NAJA, and these scholarships, are open to individuals of all racial backgrounds.
