Graduate School of Journalism
The history of journalism education in universities began with Joseph Pulitzer’s visionary gift to Columbia in 1903, which led to the opening of Columbia Journalism School in 1912. Since then, hundreds of American universities have opened schools of journalism, but Columbia remains the best known school in the world.
Through The Columbia Campaign, alumni and friends enable the School to continue to lead the field of journalism education, diversify the student body in every way, and help the dramatically changing profession of journalism meet its potential while maintaining its standards of honest, ethical reporting.

Journalism Alumni Fund for Financial Aid
Make a difference in the lives of students at Columbia and in the field.
Annual Fund gifts of all sizes have a tremendous immediate impact and lessen the role financial debt plays in employment choices. Gifts of $1000 or more ($500 or more for graduates of the past ten years) qualify alumni for exclusive Dean's Circle membership. Scholarships are named for donors of $5,000 or more.
The New York World
Support a new online news outlet operated by students, graduates, faculty and staff.
Leveraging the assets of the School, The New York World is a cost-effective way of creating high quality journalism about under-reported issues affecting New Yorkers. We can experiment with new tools of digital journalism, including creative ways of producing news, increasing public engagement, and creating more sustainable means of ongoing news production.
Kluge Challenge for Endowed Scholarship Aid
Help increase scholarship aid for journalism students through this matching gift challenge.
The Kluge Challenge supports the school’s most urgent fundraising priority: increasing scholarship funds in order to attract and support the brightest students, regardless of their ability to afford the tuition. Our goal is to be able to offer scholarship packages that cover at least 50% of tuition costs for students who qualify for such support.
Fully endow a professorship in a specific area, enabling Columbia to attract outstanding journalists as faculty members.
Priority subject areas slated for new faculty members include digital media, arts and culture, broadcast, and science and health journalism.
