Grants For Middle and High School Newspapers Partnering With Their Communities

From The Foundation Center...
Newspaper Association of America Foundation to Support Middle and High School Student Newspaper Projects

Deadline: May 16, 2008

The Newspaper Association of America Foundation ( http://www.naafoundation.org/ ) encourages middle and high schools to partner with professional newspapers in their com- munities and seek funding to start, relaunch, or revitalize student newspapers, whether online or in print.

All public and private schools serving grades 7 through 12 and working in partnership with daily or non-daily professional newspapers are eligible to receive Student/Newspaper Partnership Grants from the NAA Foundation. Schools are also encouraged to seek a university or a college as an additional partner. Funding priority is given to start up student newspapers. However, grant applications to relaunch or revitalize former or current programs also will be considered. The NAA Foundation especially welcomes grant applications from urban, rural, or minority-majority schools.

The NAA Foundation will fund up to twelve partnerships in 2008-09. Each partnership may receive up to $5,000 in Year One, plus an additional $2,500 in Year Two. Grant funds may be used for equipment, software, adviser training, and printing.
