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. Fellows will receive training, mentoring and real-world experience alongside top journalists who are using cutting-edge tools to tell stories through data, video, and more. Hearst Fellows are full-time employees with competitive salary and benefits, including health insurance and moving expenses.

You may be offered a job at the end of the two-year program.

While participation in the program is not a guarantee of future employment, our goal is to recruit candidates who eventually will join our full-time professional staff. All of us at Hearst Fellowships have an investment in your future… and in the future of Hearst Newspapers.

The experience you gain as a Hearst Fellow is the start of a strong foundation for your journalism career. Our objective is to recruit, train and retain talented journalists. We identify and develop high-caliber multimedia professionals from a diverse pool of the country’s best reporters, copy editors, photographers, designers and graphic artists. Candidates should be college graduates with interest, experience or background in journalism or related fields. Those selected will have the opportunity to grow in one of the world’s best journalism organizations.
A panel of Hearst’s top editors will review applications and select finalists. Finalists will participate in a two-day interview process at the Houston Chronicle in April at which the Hearst Fellows will be selected. Hearst Newspapers covers all domestic travel costs for the interviews.

Each completed digital package should contain:

  • One-page resume, including:
    • Academic major and minor, date or expected date of graduation
    • Permanent and current addresses
    • Email, website and social media addresses
  • On a separate page:
