Posted on Jul 27, 2023 in Media Sustainability

Underrepresented news leaders are eligible for scholarships to attend a leadership program.

Columbia Journalism School is offering the 2024 Sulzberger Executive Leadership Program. To support the program, the Google News Initiative is sponsoring four scholarships for news leaders to attend.

The program trains news leaders to lead innovation and solve strategic business challenges in a time of rapid transformation, uncertainty and opportunity.

Fellows in this five-month low-residency program spend three weeks at Columbia Journalism School in New York City, starting with a 10-day residency from January 2 to 12, 2024.

Fellows then work on their project and assignments back at their organizations and attend a weekly virtual cohort meeting. Fellows return for one final week of residency, May 20 to 24, 2024.

The scholarship covers tuition as well as travel costs to New York City for the residency weeks. 

The application deadline is Oct. 15.
