The Emerging Reporter Fund will support Journalism students doing undergraduate research and reporting on an innovative research/reporting project to encourage and fund projects of public importance and interest.

Earning a journalism degree requires an incredible amount of dedication and time and conducting in-depth reporting often carries an extra financial burden for students already facing rising levels of debt. COVID-19 and increased economic uncertainty have made student financial aid, like the Emerging Reporter Fund, more important than ever. Together, we want to ensure promising young journalists have every opportunity to earn their degrees and contribute to public discourse
