National Press Club Feldman Graduate Fellowship for Studies in Journalism
The National Press Club offers a one-year stipend of $5,000 to defray post-graduate tuition costs for graduate students in journalism. The fellowship is named for Dennis Feldman, a club member who had a long career as a journalist and public relations adviser after putting himself through grad school at night.
In order to qualify, applicants must have applied to or be enrolled in an accredited graduate program in journalism.
To apply, submit all information in one package. Forward THREE COPIES of each of the following:
- The NPC Scholarship/Fellowship application form
- Three letters of recommendation (none may come from family members)
- A financial statement and/or copies of any documents you are providing to your university to qualify for financial assistance
- A statement describing your course of study. Indicate whether you will attend full-time or part-time and when you will complete your program
- A list of schools where you have applied, or the name of the graduate program you are attending
- A brief biographical statement, explaining why you wish to obtain a graduate degree in journalism
- OPTIONAL work samples including newspaper articles (no more than five; reduced to 8 1/2" by 11" size), audio or video tapes. The National Press Club realizes that some journalism grad school applicants are seeking to change careers and therefore may not have clips or tapes. You will not be penalized. But judges would like to see some work samples from applicants with journalism experience.
Applications must be postmarked by May 1st and mailed to:
