Newhouse Fellow Program

The Newhouse Graduate Fellowship and Apprenticeship in Newspaper Journalism for Minorities seeks students with outstanding qualifications and the potential to make significant contributions to the field of newspaper journalism. It also seeks to increase the number of minority journalists in the country.

A highly competitive program, it provides two generous awards each year to minority students who have majored in subjects other than journalism as undergraduates. Students commit to 18 months of graduate study followed by 12 months of professional reporting as apprentices with The Syracuse Post-Standard or another Newhouse newspaper.
