National Press Foundation offers Statehouse Reporting Fellowship [US]

Posted on Jun 29, 2023 in Specialized Topics

Journalists based in the United States can apply for a competitive in-person reporting fellowship.

The National Press Foundation (NPF) is offering the 2023 Statehouse Reporting Fellowship, a four-day journalism training in Madison, Wisconsin, Sept. 18 to 21. NPF offers this program to help journalists their enhance skills, increase their knowledge and recharge their reporting. 

Wisconsin, a perennial battleground state, is the ideal venue to examine a host of issues confronting state lawmakers, and the country at-large: from the politics of abortion and election integrity to redistricting and growing challenges to LGBTQ rights.

A team of expert speakers and instructors will guide journalists through the thicket, that is the legislative process, where hard-ball politics makes the job of accountability and the search for the truth even tougher. 

The foundation will cover airfare, ground transportation, hotel costs and most meals.

The application deadline is Aug. 6.
