It is only through the generosity of our alumni and friends that we are able to continue the stellar reputation of the journalism program at UNT.
The Mayborn School of Journalism at UNT is funded partially by the State of Texas. The other portion comes from grants and gifts by government agencies, foundations, and individuals.
Ways to Give
Support the Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Conference
Our annual Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Conference (now in its 15th year) gives our students an amazing opportunity to network with many of the nation’s finest storytellers – and also to have their work published in our award-winning publications. To help us keep this valuable opportunity open, support the Mayborn Conference. You can also download the conference sponsorship booklet for more details.
