The money came into the Mayborn School of Journalism through the Scripps Howard Foundation.

Money will fund a five-part program will create a mentor network between students and working journalists, according to a UNT press release. The Emerging Journalists Program is set to roll out in late spring 2021 and stretch over a three-year period.
