The Gustavo Godoy Scholarship for Excellence in Journalism has been created to honor award-winning and legendary newsman Gustavo Godoy, who passed away on August 11, 2021 after a long and storied career. Godoy was among the first high-profile Hispanics to work in U.S. news media and is widely regarded as the pioneer of Spanish-language television news, largely considered the architect of what today is Univision Network News and Telemundo Network News.
Gustavo Godoy’s keen ability for discovering young talent helped launch the successful careers of hundreds of journalists still working in the industry today. A life-changing mentor to so many, this scholarship fund in his name has been established to continue his work, supporting aspiring student journalists majoring in Broadcast Journalism at FIU in Miami.
Please join us in furthering Gustavo Godoy’s vision for promoting solid journalism at this critical time in history when good journalism is needed most, by making your donation today. Your support will make a difference in the lives of young students pursuing this field with the same kind of passion and conviction for journalism Gustavo Godoy demonstrated throughout his career.
Together, we can continue to inspire the next generation to succeed and help keep Gustavo Godoy’s legacy alive through FIU’s future journalists!
All donations raised are tax-deductible and will benefit the Gustavo Godoy Scholarship for Excellence in Journalism. Should our goal of $50,000 be reached or surpassed with your donations, the endowment will be established in perpetuity. We thank you and appreciate your generosity.
