Sreejita, transcripts submitted can be unofficial but must have your name, institution name, degree conferral information for when you apply. Graduate division will require official ones later on. Please submit for all postsecondary institutions you attended!
Liana Hsu (she/her/hers)
01:02:36
Lucas, you are more than welcome to reapply! It will not have an affect but we can definitely schedule some time to connect more on this.

great, thank you
Sreejita Ghose
01:02:53
What if you don’t have officially published work?
Liana Hsu (she/her/hers)
01:05:03
Sreejita, it does not have to be a published work but we would prefer journalistic work. It can an unpublished reporting work, profile writing, etc. It should be a non-fiction writing sample that you can write now as well.
Liana Hsu (she/her/hers)

Kelechukwu Iruoma
01:23:01
I am a freelance journalist. I also represent WildAid in Nigeria. I was offered admission for fall 2022 but did not receive any funding. The offer is still available on my dashboard, but I will need funding support. I wanted to apply for the Mastercard Foundation Scholarship last year, but the offer, I think, came late. Do I need to defer the admission or reapply? If I reapply, what are my chances of getting admitted and being considered for funding or the opportunity to apply for the MasterCard scholarship for fall 2023? Would really want to hear from Blaine and anyone who can help
Kyle Rokes
