Google Journalism Fellowships are being offered to undergraduate and graduate students “interested in using technology to tell stories in new and dynamic ways.” The 10-week program begins in June with a week at the Knight Foundation in Miami. Students then spend eight weeks at their fellowship location (one of seven cities), and finish their last week at Google headquarters.
The host organizations are the Center for Investigative Reporting, the Committee to Protect Journalists, Investigative Reporters & Editors, the Knight Foundation, Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism, Nieman Journalism Lab, ProPublica and Poynter.
Fellows will be expected to make substantive contributions to the work of their organization, including researching and writing stories, contributing to open source data programs, creating timely data to accurately frame public debates about media in the United States and the world as well as finding new and compelling ways to use data to tell stories.
Fellows receive a $7,500 stipend and $1,000 for travel.
