The Allbritton Journalism Institute calls for applications for the 2024-2026 Allbritton Journalism Institute Reporting Fellowship Program.

The fellowship offers aspiring journalists a two-year educational program that prepares them for careers as credible, non-partisan reporters in the nation’s capital or wherever their work may take them. Students learn core skills from respected professional reporters and editors in a classroom setting, and they gain real-world experience by working as reporters at AJI’s publication, NOTUS.

The program begins with a four-week immersion course in the practical application of journalism skills, from ethics and newsgathering to writing and distribution. After four weeks, fellows balance ongoing classwork with their roles as reporters for NOTUS, where they cover Capitol Hill and other aspects of national policy and politics. The formal program runs for 18 months, after which fellows are invited to stay for an additional six months as they support them in seeking their next opportunity.

Funding Information

Students are paid an annual stipend of $60,000 so that they can live in the D.C. area and devote their attention and energy to the fellowship.

The deadline for applications is March 4, 2024.
