Scholarships

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 Internship Seminars.

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 Internship Seminars.
