Facebook has announced that, it is donating $1 million toward supporting diversity in journalism.
According to Facebook, the donation will take the form of 100 scholarships for students pursuing a career in news and media.
However, Facebook is not the one choosing who the scholarship winners are.
Rather it is helping empower four expert-led organizations: the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, Asian American Journalists Association, Native American Journalists Association, and National Lesbian and the Gay Journalists Association.
On the other hand, Facebook’s gift appears to stem from a deep confusion over its relationship with the media.
Per the application requirements, applicants are required to be pursuing a degree in media, news, or communications.
This measure, Facebook says is intended to ensure that applicants are committed to a career in journalism.
