Google is accepting applications for the Google News Lab Fellowship, which is aimed at students interested in using technology to tell stories in new and dynamic ways.

Fellows will have opportunities to research and write stories, contribute to open source data programs and create timely data to frame public debates accurately about issues in the United States and the world.

The program will start in June 2018, with one week at Google in Mountain View, California, followed by nine weeks at one of the participating organizations around the country.

The organizations include the Nieman Journalism Lab, the Center for Investigative Reporting, the Pew Research Center, Poynter, Matter Ventures, ProPublica, the Investigative Reporters & Editors and Witness.

Fellows will receive a stipend of US$9,000 during the summer and a travel budget of US$1,000.

The deadline to apply is Jan. 15, 2018.
