The Scripps Howard Fund is seeking innovative ideas to get post-secondary students from diverse backgrounds invested in journalism and foster environments where all journalism students can actively participate and feel welcome.
Diverse backgrounds include but are not limited to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, military background and or membership in another group that is under-represented in journalism.
- The purpose of these grants is to:
- Advance equity, diversity and inclusion in student media, journalism education and the journalism pipeline.
- Prepare students for professional and public challenges and pressures they may face as journalists of color or members of other under-represented groups.
- Equip students to deliver inclusive journalism that ensures all voices in a community are represented.
- Establish and share best practices for increasing diversity, equity and inclusion in journalism.
- Universities and nonprofit organizations can apply for one-time grants of up to $30,000 to address this challenge.
- Only U.S. based programs are eligible.
- Special consideration will be given to proposals that offer experiential learning as an element of the project.
