Over the past few years, the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism has raised almost $9 million in private funds for scholarships and academic enhancements that will ensure its success as a top-flight graduate program.
The gifts have allowed us to hand out scholarships to about two-thirds of our students based on both need and merit.
Admitted students will be notified of any scholarship award in their admission decision letter. For questions related to scholarship opportunities, contact the CUNY J-School’s admissions staff at 646-758-7700.
If you are interested in federal loans or work-study eligibility, be sure to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible.
All types of financial aid are awarded for one academic year, which includes the fall and spring semesters. You need to re-apply for need-based funding, including scholarships, loans, and work-study, for the third semester. To be eligible for any financial aid, you must maintain at least a B average.
Should you have questions or concerns about paying for your education, the Graduate Center’s Office of Financial Aid can advise you. Feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, call 212-817-7460, or visit the Grad Center’s financial assistance website.
