NAHJ offers scholarships for each school year to full-time undergraduate and graduate students pursuing careers in journalism in English or Spanish-language media, or both. The series of scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 have varying requirements and are open to students attending four-year and community colleges in the Unites States and Puerto Rico.
OMMITMENT TO THE FIELD OF JOURNALISM – Students must demonstrate a sincere desire to pursue a career in the field of journalism. This applies to students who are planning careers in English or Spanish-language print, photo, broadcast or online media.
ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT – There is no minimum grade point average to qualify for NAHJ scholarships. However, earning good grades is always important. Academic performance will play a role in deciding which students are awarded scholarships.
FINANCIAL NEED – The economic status of a student’s household will be taken into consideration in making scholarship selections.
AWARENESS OF THE COMMUNITY – The Latino community is the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. population. Student journalists need to be aware of issues that face the Latino community and Latinos in the newsroom while striving to portray all people in a fair and accurate manner in coverage of stories.
