The National Press Foundation (NPF) 2024 Elections Journalism Fellowship

Application Deadline: May 27, 2024

States are scrambling to guard their operations against cyberattacks and disinformation campaigns. Local election administrators and poll workers – the increasing targets of harassment and threats – are bracing for a new storm as November draws near.

The election also represents a decisive moment for journalism, facing a public confidence crisis of its own. To help meet the challenge, the National Press Foundation will hold a training conference in Detroit, Michigan, July 28-30. This three-day training will be a deep dive on covering elections themselves, not horse-race politics. 

NPF has assembled a team of expert speakers and instructors to help prepare journalists for what promises to be one of the most taxing election cycles in history, providing lessons learned from key battlegrounds, such as Michigan. Topics include:

  • Election infrastructure
  • Election safety and security
  • Voting rights and changes in voting laws
  • Ranked choice voting
  • Voter disinformation
  • Lessons learned from 2020

Benefits

NPF offers this professional development opportunity for journalists to enhance skills, increase knowledge and recharge their reporting. The foundation will cover airfare, hotel costs and most meals.
