Mass Media Scholarship Program at Columbia University

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation, in collaboration with Columbia Journalism School, establishes a Scholarship Program for Journalists from Greece 

With the aim of strengthening their vocational training and furthering their education, the SNF supports a Scholarship Program for journalists from Greece. 

In collaboration with the internationally recognized Columbia Journalism School in New York, the SNF grant will provide an opportunity for up to 18 candidates annually, and for a period of at least three years, to attend specialized training courses in journalism.

Scholarships are offered for the following three courses by the Columbia Journalism School:

A. A video production workshop, lasting three weeks 

B. An investigative journalism course, lasting three weeks

C. A coding and data analysis course, lasting three months

Under the guidance of the expert teaching staff, up to 6 participants per program and per year will have the opportunity to learn video, investigative and data journalism, gain additional experience, as well as receive a certificate of attendance from the Journalism School at Columbia University. 

Each scholarship provided by the SNF is a full scholarship and covers, apart from the cost of each program, the costs of accommodation, local transport and lodging for each participant, always according to the duration of each program. 

The postgraduate training programs begin in May 2017.

Interesting parties must submit the relevant application, which is posted on Columbia University’s website (the descriptions of individual programs and the related links can be found below). The final selection of candidates is at the sole discretion of Columbia University.  All programs are taught in English. Participants must have sufficient proficiency in English to participate in the programs.
