Scholarship

Join Us to Write Stories That Can Change the World

You are invited to apply for The Immigrant Story Scholarship, a stipend of $1,000 offered to students with an interest in journalism that addresses immigrant and refugee issues.

Five scholarships will be given for the calendar year 2021. 

The Immigrant Story chronicles stories of immigrants in order to document and archive the voices of troubled humanity in a short, human-interest story format. Our reach extends across multiple channels, including websites, social media and public presentations. We believe in telling stories that can change the world.

With that in mind, we’re seeking aspiring journalists who share that goal. Thanks to an anonymous donor, we are able to offer this scholarship. 

As an Immigrant Story Scholar, you will gain hands-on experience in all aspects of publishing, working with experienced editors and writers to interview sources, do related research, and write human interest stories. You will be paired with a mentor who will guide you through each step of the writing process as you work toward becoming an independent member of The Immigrant Story team. You will finish with your own portfolio comprised of eight to 10 published stories.

Learn more about the details of our scholarship requirements and application process here. Please share this information with anyone at your organization or school who may be interested.

At The Immigrant Story, we believe that telling stories brings us closer together.

When you help us share these powerful stories, you help change the narrative in today’s America
