Supporting the next generation of Latino journalists
CCNMA has given out more than $800,000 in scholarship to aspiring Latino journalists in California since 1976. Recipients now include network news producers, reporters, anchors and reporters at the Los Angeles Times, New York Times, Time Magazine, BuzzFeed and the Washington Post.
Some of the success stories
Carlos Saucedo, ABC 10 Anchor/Reporter"CCNMA's continued commitment to students of color helped launch my career. I was fortunate to receive a CCNMA scholarship in 2010 while obtaining a master's degree in journalism from USC Annenberg. CCNMA's faith in my abilities encouraged me to pursue a career in an industry where not many Latinos are represented. Years later, I can honestly say that CCNMA helped me get to where I am today. As an anchor for ABC10 in Sacramento, I do my best to exemplify the principles CCNMA strives to achieve."
Claudia Buccio, USC Journalism Student"I was blessed with receiving the CCNMA scholarship for 2 years in a row. Without CCNMA and NAHJ I would have had such a hard time affording college."
