NYU Journalism Institute Reporting Award Opens, Accepting Applications

Professor Stephen D. Solomon
Arthur L. Carter Journalism

The New York University’s (NYU) Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute is now accepting applications from journalists around the world working on an under-reported subject in the public interest.

The Institute will select one or several winners of The Reporting Award and each winner may receive a different award amount, given at the discretion of the selection committee with the maximum award amount being $12,500.

Regardless of the total award amount, the disbursement of the award is divided into two payments: $2,500 is paid upon the Institute’s acceptance of the proposal and signing of an award agreement while the balance of the award amount is paid upon completion of the work by the project completion deadline, provided the Institutes awards committee judges the work to be acceptable.

The Institute expects that the completed work will be published in a reputable media outlet of wide circulation.

In addition to monetary support, the award winners are granted access to the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute’s facilities as well as well as NYU’s libraries and other scholarly resources.

The award supports research and reporting for a significant work of journalism on any medium and provides up to a maximum of $12,500 for a significant work of journalism, in any medium, on an under-reported subject in the public interest.

The Institute accepts applications from international journalists and they do not need to be U.S. citizens nor do they 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.

The institute welcomes applications from journalists working in virtually any field or country, but 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), and journalists holding staff positions at established media outlets that are in a position to fund such projects on their own.

The programme does not fund proposals to report from locations where there is a conflict that might imperil journalists, nor will it support projects deemed by the selection committee to have a high level of risk for the applicant.

For detailed information about the terms of The Reporting Award, please see the Terms of Agreement.

Applications close on February 22, 2023.
