Hearst Journalism Fellowship
Tomorrow’s journalists won’t be satisfied by simply telling stories; they will be creating immersive experiences that let audiences get involved with their reporting. The forward-thinking tools you’ll need are being used at Hearst today.
If you have the skills, passion and determination to be a journalist of the future – a trained professional who knows a good story and who has the talent and confidence to tell it in a way that best imparts its relevance and importance to news consumers – the Hearst Fellowship might be perfect for you.
This is the premier two-year newspaper fellowship in the country. Our goal is to recruit, train and retain the best of the next generation of journalists – top-notch multi-media professionals with a broad range of skills.
The program consists of two 12-month rotations at our top metro papers and websites. Fellows are full-fledged journalists expected to make significant, valuable contributions in a variety of roles and platforms. There is no better place to start.
The Fellowship is a two-year program focusing on journalism in a changing digital world. The Fellowship program consists of two 12-month rotations at our top metro papers.
