Legislative Gazette - John S. and James L Knight Foundation Scholarship
“The Knight Foundation is a national foundation with strong local roots. We invest in journalism, in the arts, and in the success of cities where brothers John S. and James L. Knight once published newspapers. Our goal is to foster informed and engaged communities, which we believe are essential for a healthy democracy.”
Established in 2019 by the Knight Foundation, this scholarship is designed to provide funding for students who take part in the Legislative Gazette course for 15 credits in a single semester. Its intent is to assist students by off-setting the cost of living and working full time in Albany by supporting the tuition expenses of the course. Students who apply will need to be approved for the internship, registered in the journalism course for the Spring 2021. The scholarship will be dispersed for the Spring 21 semester only.
