HBCU Digital Media Fellowship
Up to five students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) will receive hands-on experience during the three-day Online News Association Conference, Oct. 5-7 in Washington, D.C., as part of the HBCU Digital Media Fellowship. The program also gives them high-profile exposure and advanced practical knowledge of emerging technologies, tools and approaches to reporting and distributing news online.
Supported for the fourth year by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, each fellow will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the conference, as well as a free one-year ONA membership. Over the three days, fellows will work closely with lead mentor Michael Grant, Creative Director, San Francisco Business Times and 2017-18 John S. Knight Fellow at Stanford University, and Michelle Johnson, chair of the ONA Student Newsroom and Innovation Lab and Associate Professor of Practice, Multimedia Journalism at Boston University, to produce multimedia packages for the conference and be immersed in intensive digital journalism training.
