Need-Based Scholarships

Need-based scholarships are currently ONLY available for the INTERNSHIP & MENTORING PROGRAM IN MADRID, SPAIN.

There are currently NO SCHOLARSHIPS available for the BOOTCAMPS.

ROOSTERGNN Global News Network (RGNN.org) and its Academy, non-profit solidarity organizations, support hands-on education and training for the next generation of journalists.

Thanks to the support of our benefactors, we are offering need-based scholarships for our RGNN Academy programs.

We hope that this scholarship policy will allow talented students, who otherwise would not have the financial means to afford the full tuition fee, to participate in our RGNN Academy programs.

Our benefactor, FACTHOUS, a digital communications and marketing agency and one of the primary benefactors of ROOSTERGNN Academy, is offering need-based scholarships for students participating in ROOSTERGNN Academy programs.
