NYU’s journalism program is on the lookout for reporters with an eye for stories that often go unnoticed in today’s media. According to an NYU press release, The Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute is encouraging increased awareness for “underreported subjects of public interest” with their presentation of The Reporting Award.
The Reporting Award debuted in 2009 as an initiative to inspire young journalists to cover bold issues that are frequently overlooked due to staff and budget limitations within news outlets. Yale alum Sarah Stillman received last year’s award for her work in Iraq and Afghanistan where she uncovered the hardships civilian workers face on American military bases.
The competition winner will receive a $2,500 stipend and an additional $10,000 upon completion and approval of their work. Applications are due on Jan. 15 and the award recipient will be announced on Mar. 1.
