Kiplinger journalism fellowships open [Worldwide]
Print, broadcast or online journalists with five or more years of experience can apply for this fellowship.
The Kiplinger Program in Public Affairs Journalism offers short-term fellowships to help make better use of new online tools and channels. The fellowship runs April 6-11 at Ohio State University in Columbus.
Fellows will spend a week of training designed to fit journalists’ needs. They will explore creative uses of social media, investigative reporting, public affairs reporting, online data tools and ethical issues that come with social media.
The Kiplinger Foundation covers the costs of the training, lodging, most meals and a travel stipend.
Candidates must send a bio (maximum of 150 words), a short explanation of how the fellowship would benefit them and their newsroom (maximum of 200 words), two references contacts, and Web links to three recent stories. If your work requires that you write in a language other than English, you must provide originals and English translations.
The deadline is Nov. 30.
