NAJA Scholarships

Each year, NAJA offers scholarships ranging from $500 to $2,500 to Native American students pursuing journalism degrees at a higher learning institution. To apply, students must be current NAJA members in good standing. Annual memberships cost $10 for high school students and $20 for college students. 

The 2014-2015 NAJA Scholarship Application is now open. The deadline for submissions is June 2, 2014.

Applications will be reviewed by committee of media professionals later this year. All scholarship recipients will be notified in Fall 2014.
