African-American Journalism Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: May 11, 2021

Good journalism is more important than ever.

From coverage of COVID-19 to police brutality and protests, journalism shapes the way we understand the world and work on solutions to impactful problems.

However, while accurate and empathetic coverage of racial injustice is critical right now, historically just 4% of journalists in leadership positions are Black.

Building a better, more diverse free press in our country will require widespread support and reform.

As one small part of this, the African-American Journalism Scholarship will be awarded to a Black student at any education level who plans on (or already is) pursuing a career in journalism.
