Applicants must also submit a portfolio of three published samples from any platform. Two letters of recommendations are required as well.

The scholarship is open to graduate and undergraduate journalism students in the New York metropolitan area. Prospective students who have been accepted and plan to enroll in a journalism program in the New York area in the fall are also invited to apply.
