Graduate Newspaper Fellowship for Minorities

The Newhouse Graduate Newspaper Fellowship for Minorities is a highly competitive 18-month program that provides two generous awards each year to minority students who have majored in subjects other than journalism as undergraduates. It is supported by the Newhouse Foundation, a private foundation established by Samuel I. Newhouse.

The winners study in the magazine, newspaper and digital journalism master’s program at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. Additionally, students receive professional, on-the-job training. While attending classes, students work as part-time reporting interns at Advance Media New York.

Advance Media New York—with two major brands, Syracuse.com and The Post-Standard newspaper—provides 24/7 digitally-focused news and information to Central New York.

Fellows receive full tuition scholarships, $1,400-per-month stipends, health insurance coverage, up to $1,500 to cover moving expenses to Syracuse, up to $800 for travel to professional conferences and up to $1,000 for books, equipment, fees and other academic expenses.
