UNC School of Media and Journalism undergraduate majors who have been admitted to the school are eligible to apply for funding through a wide array of awards made possible by generous donors. Applications and deadlines vary. Each application will close at 11:59 p.m. the night of the deadline. Please review guidelines carefully and follow directions. Awards differ from scholarships in that award amounts are paid directly to the student rather than to the student’s UNC account. Awards may have tax implications.
The John Sweeney Experience Award provides funding for a provocative, innovative summer experience to gain new insights, learn new technologies and master new subjects. This special application is open Jan. 1 - Feb. 1.
