Apply for the all-expenses paid, year-long Widening the Pipeline 2022 Fellowship from the National Press Foundation (NPF).
NPF is committed to leveraging its resources and decades of training experience to help grow the pipeline of diverse journalists who will rise to positions of influence in America’s newsrooms.
Specifically, NPF will:
▪︎ Recruit up to 25 young journalists for a 12-month fellowship in the leadership, in-depth reporting, data and multimedia skills they need to hold governments and corporations accountable and to advance in their newsrooms.
▪︎ Provide each fellow with individual coaching and mentoring.
▪︎ Bring fellows to Washington for training, mentoring and networking sessions with editors.
▪︎ Survey fellows on promotion, retention and job satisfaction.
To qualify, applicants must be U.S.-based working journalists. You may be staff or freelance, but you must have a letter from an editor who will recommend you for the program and consider publishing your work. This fellowship is particularly suited to those who have more than one but fewer than seven years of journalism experience.
Beginning in March 2022, the once-monthly training sessions will include two in-person gatherings in Washington, D.C. (unless COVID-19 guidelines mandate that all sessions be virtual). Participants must be fully vaccinated to attend in-person trainings. Successful applicants will need a letter from an editor or supervisor indicating their willingness to allow their attendance at all 12 sessions.
