About NJPF

New Jersey Press Foundation began in 1962 with a $100 scholarship awarded to a college journalism student. Over the years since, the foundation has expanded its mission to help develop the next generation of journalists and informed citizens, and to promote the importance of a free press to our democracy.

In 2013, New Jersey Press Foundation provided more than $14,000 in funding for paid summer journalism internships and awarded $8,500 in scholarships — more than $22,500 total.

Current foundation programs and sponsorships include:
