Facebook Journalism Project Scholarship

Information about specific application requirements and deadlines, as well as application forms, will be available soon.

NLGJA is proud to announce a partnership with the Facebook Journalism Project. The Facebook Journalism Project is committed to supporting quality journalism that strengthens and connects communities. They have partnered with some of the leading journalism organizations in the country, including NLGJA, to establish The Facebook Journalism Project Scholarship program for students who aspire to pursue a career in journalism and media.

For the 2018-19 school year, the Facebook Journalism Project Scholarship will be offered to journalism organizations serving underrepresented communities that share Facebook’s commitment: NLGJA, National Association of Hispanic Journalists, Asian American Journalists Association and Native American Journalists Association. NLGJA is excited to expand our support for the next generation of journalists by participating in the Facebook Journalism Project Scholarship program.

“NLGJA has been dedicated to helping the next generation of LGBTQ journalists succeed since our inception,” said NLGJA Executive Director Adam K. Pawlus. “We are thrilled to be given the opportunity, in partnership with the Facebook Journalism Project, to provide scholarships to 25 deserving students over the next five years.”

Beginning in 2018, Facebook has provided funding for NLGJA to award five $10,000 scholarships each year for the next five years.

To be eligible to receive the scholarship, applicants must be enrolled juniors, seniors or graduate students at an accredited university in the United States pursuing a degree in digital media/journalism/communications with a commitment to storytelling as demonstrated by completed coursework, clips/work samples and a letter of recommendation from a professor or internship supervisor familiar with their work and attesting to career commitment.
