The NAHJ New Mexico Scholarship Fund is intended to help folks aspiring to work in news complete their higher education.

Our first scholarship will be $500, to be awarded in the summer of 2020 to a student enrolled at any college or university in New Mexico who is studying journalism, mass communications or a related field; or to a student who is involved with a journalism organization on their campus.

Applicants must be at least sophomore level or higher in their studies. Graduate students are also welcome to apply. This scholarship will be open to students of all races, ethnicities, ages and levels of experience.

Applicants will be asked to submit an essay relating to how their work will support diversity and inclusion in news. They will also be evaluated on their level of need and their dedication to staying in journalism.
