Local news faculty champions: Program funding available


Total funding available: $25,000 (25 $1,000 awards)
Deadline to apply: June 14

The Center for Community News' mission is to create/support local media collaborations where student reporting is seen outside of the college/university. These take many different shapes and sizes, from a class partnership to university/college-run newsrooms, to the management of media interns, to re-directing student media to be more community focused.

We encourage you to apply for our 2024 cohort of Faculty Champions! Twenty-five $1,000 awards are available for faculty starting and growing news-academic partnerships. Some success stories from our inaugural cohort include Endicott College, Claflin University and Bloomfield College. They're in great company with the rest of our Faculty Champions, whose student reporting programs fill a critical need in their communities.
