The Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute at New York University (“the Institute”) is pleased to announce its Reporting Award to underwrite the research and reporting for a significant work of journalism in any medium on an under-reported topic in the public interest (“the Work”).
- The Institute will select one or more winners of the Reporting Award. Each winner (“the Winner”) may receive a different amount of money, at the discretion of the Committee. The maximum award is twelve thousand five hundred dollars ($12,500).
- The Competition is open to anyone age 21 and older, with the exceptions provided for in this section. Entrants are not required to be published journalists but the Institute encourages applications from journalists with a proven track record.
- Not eligible for the Competition are: NYU Affiliates and their immediate families; NYU graduates receiving degrees dated 2020 or thereafter; and journalists holding staff positions at established media outlets determined by the Committee to be ineligible because they are capable of funding such a project on their own. The Institute reserves the absolute right to disqualify any entrant to the Competition whom it deems ineligible according to these criteria.
- Applicants to the NYU Reporting Award may not apply to the Matthew Power Literary Reporting Award in the same year.
- All decisions of the Institute regarding eligibility will be final and binding.
- While the institute welcomes applications from journalists working in virtually any field or country, there are some eligibility restrictions. The following individuals are not eligible to apply for the Reporting Award:
- NYU Affiliates
- Recent NYU graduates (degrees dated 2020 or later)
- Journalists holding staff positions at established media outlets that are in a position to fund such projects on their own.
- The Institute welcomes applications from international journalists; you do not need to be a U.S. citizen nor do you need to reside in the U.S. to be eligible. However, the work that the award supports must be in English and must be accepted for publication by a reputable media outlet with a wide circulation. The publication does not need to be U.S.-based, but it should be well known.
