NPR Kroc fellowships open [US]

Posted on Oct 27, 2020 in Multimedia Journalism

Recent graduates interested in public radio journalism can apply for a one-year fellowship with National Public Radio (NPR).

The NPR Kroc Fellowship will train three fellows in public radio journalism - writing, reporting, producing and editing, for both radio and the web.

Fellows will receive a US$45,000 stipend, benefits and a paid vacation. Fellowships will be primarily based at NPR's Washington headquarters, but may also include an assignment at a member station.

Applications are open to students who have earned an undergraduate or graduate degree on or after Jan. 1, 2020 or who expect to earn an undergraduate or graduate degree by the spring of 2021 before the fellowship begins in August 2021.

Journalism or radio experience is not required. Foreign nationals interested in applying must have the necessary employment authorization.

The deadline to apply is Dec. 31.
