Report for America seeks host newsrooms [US]

Posted on August 20, 2018

Deadline: 

October 31, 2018

News organizations can apply to participate in a program that seeks to strengthen local media.

Report For America (RFA), a project funded by journalists Charles Sennott and Steven Waldman with support from The GroundTruth Project, Google News Lab and others, places journalists in local newsrooms in under-covered corners of America.

RFA is looking for news organizations interested in hosting the next class of RFA corps members in 2019.

Selected reporters will work for one to two years at host newsrooms, starting June 2019. Half of a entry level salary is paid by RFA, and the rest is split between the news organizations and local donors.

The deadline is Oct. 31.
