About this grant

Michigan State University’s Knight Center for Environmental Journalism and its affiliated Great Lakes Echo news service teaches and graduates students to be professional environmental reporters. Recognizing the need to diversify the student body and newsrooms focused on Great Lakes reporting, the Center will develop a diversity in journalism program. This grant will support student scholarships for coursework, conferences and internships to provide professional experiences beyond the classroom, also contributing to the scope of stories by students with diverse perspectives.
