Applicants may use Arizona State University's Tuition Calculator to estimate the cost of Cronkite School programs. Please note, students should plan for 12-15 credits per semester for a total of three semesters. Summer credits may have a different cost than estimates for fall and spring.
All applicants to the Master of Arts in Investigative Journalism, Master of Mass Communication and the Master of Arts in Sports Journalism are considered for merit-based funding in the form of assistantships and fellowships. The Cronkite School gives priority to candidates who complete applications before Dec. 1.
Assistantship packages include half or full tuition and a stipend in exchange for 20 hours of work per week. Graduate assistants may be assigned to conduct research with individual faculty members or may serve as graders for undergraduate courses.
Graduate students with an interest in business journalism may be offered assistantships within the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism, housed within the Cronkite School.
Students with an interest in health care journalism may be eligible for a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Graduate Assistantship or scholarship. For more information, contact Senior Associate Dean Kristin Gilger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students with an interest in nonprofit leadership or coverage of issues relating to disabilities may be assigned to work within the National Center on Disability and Journalism, housed within the Cronkite School.
Students with an interest in border coverage may be assigned to work with Cronkite School Southwest Borderlands Initiative programs.
Fellowships cover partial or full tuition without required work hours.
In addition to these Cronkite School funding options, the Cronkite School works with students to seek funding from other sources.
The NCAA Ethnic Minority and Women’s Enhancement Graduate Scholarship awards $7,500 to 13 ethnic minorities and 13 female college graduates “who are entering their first year of graduate studies in a sports administration or program that will help the applicant obtain a career in intercollegiate athletics, such as athletics administrator, coach, athletic trainer or a career that provides a direct service to intercollegiate athletics.” Eligible student athletes interested in the Cronkite School’s Master of Arts in Sports Journalism should consider applying for this opportunity.
