Poynter-Koch Media and Journalism Fellowship


"The Poynter-Koch Media and Journalism Fellowship is a power-packed, year-long experience that gives early career journalists the coaching, network and skills they need to have a long and lasting career in journalism." Journalists can apply with an existing newsroom (if it participates in the program) or receive placement for a year of full-time work. Part of a fellow's salary is covered by the fellowship, and they also receive training and mentorship opportunities. Application deadlines typically occur in the summer, with the fellowship running from August to May of the next year (eg. August 2023 to May 2024).
