This two-year, $120,000 project grant supports the Institute for Urban Journalism at Morgan State University. The Institute focuses on training a new cadre of black journalists through fellowships, continuing Social Justice Reporting Collaboratives between students at Morgan State and other journalism institutions, and producing research on meeting the info needs of black communities residing in news deserts or facing otherwise biased or insufficient news.‚Äč

Democracy Fund is proud to partner with Morgan State as they work to grow the next generation of black journalists, giving them the tools, resources, and networks they need to make an impact on their industry
