Poynter-Koch Media and Journalism Fellowship 2022 for early-career professionals

Application Deadline: February 25, 2022

The year-long Poynter-Koch Media and Journalism Fellowship is for early-career professionals who are aspiring future leaders in the industry.

As a finalist for the fellowship, you’ll have the opportunity to find placement as a paid, full-time journalist at a participating news outlet, joining colleagues who are passionate about journalism and the critical role of the free press in society. You’ll learn from each other, on the job, and from a robust, real-world curriculum presented by seasoned, professional journalists.

In-person and Virtual

Fellows gather weekly to engage in robust coursework, such as media training and workshops and discussions about today’s most pressing journalistic issues. Three times during the year you’ll join the other fellows and faculty for additional workshops and activities at multi-day summits.

The participants — up to 60 per fellowship class — come from all over the United States. The news organizations they work for range from metropolitan dailies to local market television stations to digital enterprises. Fellows contribute their many unique perspectives to an ongoing dialogue over the future of journalism.

Mentor Program

The fellowship program works with participants to match them with a professional journalist mentor for the year. Mentors meet with each fellow at least twice a month either in person or by phone. Professional development and advancement are the intended focus, but the agenda is left up to the mentor-mentee pair.
