Google News Lab Fellowship

We seek to develop the next generation of reporters working to inform, engage, and inspire people around the globe.

The Google News Lab Fellowship offers students interested in journalism and technology the opportunity to spend the summer working at relevant organizations across the US to gain valuable experience and make lifelong contacts and friends.

While the work of each host organization is unique, Fellows have opportunities to research and write stories, contribute to open source data programs, and create timely data to accurately frame public debates about issues in the US and the world.

Fellows receive a stipend of $9,000 USD and a travel budget of $1,000 during the 10-week program, which runs from June-August.

Important Dates

The 2018 application deadline is January 15, 2018 at midnight Pacific time. The Fellowship begins in June and runs through August.

Selection Process

We're looking for students who are passionate about reporting and the role that technology can play in the pursuit of the craft. You must be a US student or a student studying in the US with a relevant visa to qualify. That said, we welcome students from all majors and degree programs. If the following sounds like you, we encourage you to apply:

You’re excited about journalism, especially data driven journalism or freedom of expression online. You’re interested in exploring and creating business models to help the industry in the digital age.

You have an excellent academic record, and a few activities that show you’re engaged outside of school. You think analytically and have a knack for research, writing, and communication. You’re a master multitasker who works quickly, smartly, and resourcefully. Experience with a web programming language like HTML or Javascript and spreadsheet software gives you an edge.
