This fellowship for public media journalists will strengthen news leadership and ethical decision-making skills. Over nine months, participants will receive individual coaching, learn from industry experts, collaborate in small peer groups, and work on a personal project that will benefit their newsroom and their own leadership. This fellowship requires participation in twice-monthly online workshops, along with additional online meetings with peer groups and coaches and one trip to St. Petersburg, Florida, in September.
This nine-month fellowship is designed to accelerate your ability to uphold journalism’s highest editorial standards, lead through change, foster innovation, create an audience- and DEIB-focused strategy, and cultivate thriving news organizations.
This course is free for admitted participants. Tuition is covered by a grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
The program will select two cohorts of fellows — 25 in each group — for a total of 50 participants.
Participants for the first cohort will be notified in June and convene in St. Petersburg for five days the week of Sept.11, 2023. A second cohort application will launch in early 2024 and convene in September 2024. Applicants who aren’t selected for the first cohort can apply again for the second one when those applications are made available in early 2024.
The deadline to apply for the first cohort is May 15.
