Mayborn Graduate Scholarship

The Frank W. Mayborn Graduate Institute of Journalism is pleased to award a number of $10,000 scholarships to exceptionally qualified graduate students each year. Selections for these highly competitive awards are announced each spring in April at the Celebrate Mayborn event. Funds are released for the following academic year in two equal parts; $5,000 in the fall and $5,000 the following spring. Partial awards are given in some circumstances. Students may apply twice, once in their first year and then again in the second year of study. Students receiving the Mayborn Graduate Scholarship must carry a full course load of nine hours each semester. As the Mayborn Graduate Scholarship is a competitive award, non-resident recipients receiving this award will be granted resident tuition for the duration of the scholarship period.

Consideration of awarding the Mayborn Scholarship will be made to graduate students who plan to enter all journalism fields such as news, public relations, advertising, photojournalism and broadcast news. This requirement adds diversity and fresh thinking from a variety of disciplines to the Mayborn Graduate Institute of Journalism.

To apply for the Mayborn Scholarship, you must be an unconditionally accepted student to the Frank W. Mayborn Graduate Institute of Journalism and Toulouse Graduate School by the scholarship deadline which is the first Friday in March of each year. The 2018-19 application deadline is Friday, March 1st at 5 p.m. Applications submitted after the deadline may be considered if more funding is found before the fall term begins.
