More wins under the belt. 🔥

ICYMI: The 2023 George Polk Awards in Journalism features one of our alumna — and one of our faculty.

Rachael Levy '14 was on the Reuters team that won this year's Business Reporting award for covering the various companies of tech billionaire Elon Musk. SpaceX workers were seeing injuries. Neuralink was treating lab animals poorly. Tesla failed to protect customer privacy.

Distinguished Professor Masha Gessen won the award in Commentary for their The New Yorker essay titled "In the Shadow of the Holocaust." The essay is profoundly personal and highly relevant, providing a critique of Israel's war on Gaza and the way critics (even those who are Jewish) are labeled "antisemitic."

Congratulations to Gessen, Levy, and the other winners of this year's Polk Awards.

Imagine a world where aspiring journalists don't have to worry about incurring debt from student loans -- but instead, focus on what has called them to do work in service of the public.

At the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York, we’re making a tuition-free education a reality for our students.

In the approach to our 20th anniversary, the Newmark J-School is launching a campaign to increase philanthropic support to cover the cost of tuition for all of its students in perpetuity.

A new and transformative $10 million gift from Craig Newmark Philanthropies will empower Newmark J-School to advance the future of journalism education.

“If we believe journalism is public service, a service that is essential to our democracy, then we need to eliminate the barriers that stand between the people who want to go into journalism and a successful career in news media,” said Graciela Mochkofsky, Dean of the Newmark J-School. “The first barrier is lack of access to an excellent journalism education, and the Newmark J-School is determined to lead the way in removing it. Our beleaguered industry and profession demand it.”

A new chapter in Newmark J-School’s story is about to begin. 🔗 in bio.
