NYU Journalism - NAJA Scholarship applications open through Jan. 4, 2022

NAJA partners with NYU for second year to offer fall 2022 full-tuition scholarship

The New York University Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute is proud to offer a new full-tuition scholarship to a Native American Journalism Association (NAJA) member admitted to one of the ten NYU Journalism graduate programs in the fall of 2022.

This full tuition scholarship is worth greater than $70,000.

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 the school's top-level NYU graduate journalism programs:

Cultural Reporting & Criticism

Business & Economic Reporting

Global & Joint Program Studies

Literary Reportage

Magazine & Digital Storytelling

News & Documentary

Reporting the Nation & New York

Science, Health & Environmental Reporting

Studio 20: Digital First

American Journalism Online Master's

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, their 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 their faculty, who are at the top of their fields. Their 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, and this scholarship is as well.

The deadline to apply is Jan. 4, 2022. Some flexibility is available with the deadline and interested candidates should contact NYU with any extension requests.

Applications are available here.
