Newsroom Fellowship Program

Status: Closed

  • Fellowships

Organisation: The New York Times

Deadline: 01/12/2023

Location: United States & United Kingdom

The New York Times is accepting applications for the Newsroom Fellowship, a one-year work program aimed at cultivating the next generation of journalists.

The fellowship represents a unique opportunity to do great journalism for The Times. It incorporates speakers, feedback and training opportunities. The program’s goal is to benefit not only the participants and The Times, but also other newsrooms. They expect most of the fellows will graduate to positions around the country and world.

The 2024-25 program incorporates a range of reporters, editors and visual journalists.

They typically accept about 30 fellows per year, although the number may vary.

What kind of work will the fellows perform?

  • The fellows handle the kind of work that the other full-time journalists perform. They generally post reporting jobs, as well as roles in photo, graphics, design, video, audio, audience and opinion.
  • Early- and mid-career journalists interested in editing should consider the newsroom’s Editing Residency.

Which offices do the fellows work in?

  • Most fellows work out of their New York headquarters, but some opportunities may be available in Washington, San Francisco and London offices.
  • The newsroom has adopted a hybrid routine that includes both in-person and at-home work.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The program is designed for journalists with some experience who are early in their careers, including recent college graduates.
  • Applicants must be authorized to work in the United States. Applicants to positions in London must be authorized to work in the United Kingdom. They will not sponsor new work visas for the fellowship, but they may consider you if you have an existing work visa or a valid student visa that can be extended via Optional Practical Training.
