Scholarships to Apply for Over the Holiday Break

If you’re a student spending time during the weekend, check out these opportunities from the Native American Press Association.

NAJA-NYU Journalism Fellowship Fall 2022

Native American journalists who are members of the Native American Press Association (NAJA) may apply for one of ten full-fee scholarships at the New York University School of Journalism for Fall 2022.

Candidates will have the option to choose one of ten graduate journalism programs: from News & Documentary, to Science Health & Environment Reporting, to Cultural Reporting and Criticism.

The goal of the NYU Journalism-NAJA Scholarship is to support an exceptional journalist who may not have the opportunity to pursue an associate’s degree in journalism in one of NYU’s graduate journalism programs, according to the NYU website.

Interested candidates must complete the regular NYU Press application. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until January 4th, which means early applications are encouraged.

Applicants must show proof of membership in the Native American Press Association (NAJA) at the time of accepting the fellowship award, so they can wait to join NAJA until the offer is received.

NAJA-NBC News Summer Fellowship

The Association of Native American Journalists is also partnering with Comcast NBCUniversal for the NBC News Summer Fellows Program.

The NBC News Summer Fellows Program will train college juniors, seniors, or graduate students to embark on a summer long fellowship in New York City. Fellows will work on one of the network’s many 10-week programs. Fellows are paid $16.50 an hour for 40 hours per week, and must be registered NAJA members to apply.

Applications can be filled out here, and require: Application form, CV, 200-word answer to the questions “Why do you want to pursue a career in broadcast journalism and what do you hope to gain from the internship experience?” School transcript and one letter of recommendation.

The fellowship begins on June 6, 2022, although there is no clear deadline for applications.
