Hello! Your passion for journalism is exciting, and there are plenty of great journalism schools in the US. Some of the top-ranked ones include:

1. Northwestern University (Medill School of Journalism)

2. University of Missouri (Missouri School of Journalism)

3. Columbia University (Columbia Graduate School of Journalism)

4. New York University (Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute)

5. University of Southern California (USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism)

Each of these programs has a unique approach to journalism education with various concentrations and opportunities. For example, students at Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism participate in the Journalism Residency program in which they gain hands-on experience at media organizations across the country. USC Annenberg offers international programs like the Maymester, where students spend a month abroad to study global aspects of communication, journalism, and public relations.

As for scholarships, many universities offer merit- or need-based scholarships that journalism students can apply for. Additionally, there are external scholarships that cater specifically to journalism students. A few examples are the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) scholarships, the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) scholarships, and the Overseas Press Club Foundation Scholar Award. Each scholarship has its own eligibility criteria, so it's essential to research and apply for those that align with your background and interests.

Don't forget to look into each university's faculty, facilities, campus media outlets, and internship opportunities that can shape your journalism education experience. Best of luck in your college search!
