If you’re looking to pursue a career in journalism, join us for an informative virtual event this October 25 to learn about the NBCU Academy at University of North Texas, an elite program to help develop journalists–including through scholarship assistance.
Dallas College’s School of Creative Arts, Entertainment & Design and The Mayborn School of Journalism at UNT have joined 16 major national journalism schools as part of the NBCU Academy.
The Dallas College Foundation offers scholarships to NBC Academy students pursuing a career in Broadcasting, Journalism, Radio/Television and Film. It serves as a pathway for students to bridge the gap between the desire for a quality education and the cost of higher education.
The NBC scholarship awards 10 students per year, $2,000 for Fall and Spring semesters (renewable) and provides tuition, books and professional growth opportunities and activities.
The Oct. 25 virtual event will include information on the program, the scholarships and how to apply, along with a panel discussion, “Navigating Careers in Mass Communications.” Speakers will include Anzio Williams, NBC’s senior vice president of diversity, equity and inclusion; Sameepa Shetty, an NBC producer; and Kristi Nelson, news anchor on Dallas’ Channel 5.
This event takes place from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Zoom. Attendance is free, but please register in advance to join.
