Your support of Cronkite Scholarships will make a meaningful difference for future generations of journalism and communication professionals.

Through a unique model that prioritizes experiential learning, the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication offers a world-class education in journalism, strategic communications and public relations. Our students benefit from a faculty of industry leaders, immersive programming and cutting-edge facilities.

At the same time, many deserving students are unable to access the benefits of such learning.

Since fall 2019, 157 first-generation college students with financial need were admitted to the Cronkite School but didn’t attend. In all colleges and universities, financial stress is a leading reason that students don’t apply, enroll or graduate.

Donors like you enable aspiring journalists and professional communicators to come to the Cronkite School to receive a hands-on and immersive educational experience. Your gift helps defray the cost of attendance for hardworking students, including those who come from marginalized communities, are the first in their family to attend college and are juggling a full course load as well as familial responsibilities and work outside of the classroom.

It’s been amazing to work with great people [and] learn so much about journalism. All of that was possible because someone believed in me and invested in my future. The opportunities at the Cronkite School are so incredible and something I wouldn’t have been able to do if I didn’t have that support financially… that has made the world of a difference in my life.”
