The premier two-year newspaper fellowship program in the country just got better.
We currently are accepting applications for the next class of Fellows, who will begin in September 2015.
The program has been expanded, with more opportunities for qualified journalists. The application process is now streamlined and completely electronic.
The deadline to apply is Friday, January 9, 2015. Finalists will participate in an expenses-paid, two-day judging process in Houston in April.
The goal of the Hearst Journalism Fellowships is to recruit, train and retain the next generation of journalists – top-notch multimedia professionals from a diverse pool of talented reporters, copy editors, photographers, designers and graphic artists.
Fellows are full-fledged journalists expected to make significant, valuable contributions in a variety of roles and platforms. They must be versatile and have a broad range of skills.
Those selected for the program will work one-year rotations at two sites, assigned from among the Houston Chronicle, San Francisco Chronicle, San Antonio Express-News, Albany Times Union and Connecticut Media Group.
Fellows receive competitive salary and benefits, including health insurance and moving expenses.
