  • a four-year undergraduate degree, or a three-year undergraduate degree with one year of graduate study.
  • complete the fellowship application and the application for admission to the journalism master’s program.


The 2023 Fellowship pays for two of the program’s three or four semesters’ worth of tuition and registration costs. Additionally, the fellow will earn a stipend of about $16,000 for each of the fellowship’s two semesters.

Application Method

Applying for both the fellowship and the M.A. program at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute at the same time is required for journalists interested in the fellowship.

The applicant must decide which of our nine concentrations, as a field of study, most appeals to them.
