The program features four weeks of on-site classroom sessions to be held in New York, Mountain View, California and Hong Kong or Tokyo, in addition to individual coaching throughout the year.

Each fellow will also work on a specific project that is relevant to their newsroom within the main fellowship topics: technology, monetization and data.

The deadline is June 26.
