Happy New Year!

We are pleased to announce the 2021 New York Times College Scholarship Program. Since 1999, The Times has supported more than 300 extraordinary graduates of New York City high schools who have attended colleges across the United States and who have studied in exchange programs around the world.

The Scholarship Program is open to New York City high school seniors in public, private or parochial schools in the five boroughs, who have an interest in a career in journalism and have demonstrated academic achievement while facing significant obstacles.

This year, we intend to support 10 students with scholarships of up to $15,000 a year. Students must enroll in a full-time course of study at an accredited college or university in the United States. Each scholarship will be renewable, as long as the student maintains a good academic record.

We encourage students who best meet the application criteria to apply. Please note that prior experience in journalism is not required.

Please share! The application deadline has been extended until Sunday, January 10, 2021. All applications must be completed and submitted online here.
