NCSMA’s Journalism Fellowship Program
NCSMA offers annual fellowships to N.C. advisers to help them offset summer course expenses. Designed to cover full tuition and lodging expenses for each adviser, the fellowships are application-based.

The program allows teachers to enroll in a one-week, short-term summer course with tuition funding provided by NCSMA.

N.C. journalism teachers and media advisers can qualify for free in-state tuition, lodging and books through this program. The fellowships, awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, are valued at $1,230 per person.

Note: The 2019 summer session course offered will be MEJO 490: Teaching Broadcast Journalism in the Secondary School. Priority deadline for applications is April 1. Course dates are July 7 to 13.
