Newsroom by the Bay is committed to ensuring diversity in the classroom so that the newsrooms of tomorrow reflect our society as a whole. Our NBTB scholarships go to qualified students who are eligible for free/reduced lunch at their schools, and who we believe will both benefit from our program and contribute to it in a valuable way. Click here to determine if you and your family meet the free/reduced lunch eligibility guidelines.

Our NBTB scholars participate in our program just as any other student would; however, they also may be asked to help program leaders, team leaders or counselors with program needs.

If you would like to be considered for this needs-based scholarship, please apply by March 1, and ask a counselor, teacher or school administrator to send us a letter, also by March 1, that tells us about your need and how NBTB could benefit you and what level of assistance you require. We will respond to your application and letter by March 17.

Some students have received assistance from organizations such as Donors Choose. We also work with Wishbone, a nonprofit fundraising organization that helps students find donors for scholarships.

Please contact these organizations directly for more information.
