The Google News Initiative, in partnership with the National Newspapers Publishers Association, the National Association of Hispanic Publishers, and the Association of Alternative Newsmedia, has launched the Google News Initiative Student Fellowship program aimed at developing and supporting students of color who are interested in careers at the intersection of technology, media, and journalism.
The Google News Initiative Student Fellowship program intends to address the barriers of access to early career opportunities many students of color face, as well as support investigative journalism, technological innovation, and digital transformation in local newsrooms that serve diverse and underrepresented populations.
Fellows will be given a travel payment of $1,000, plus a stipend of $5,000 for the course of the 10-week program.
The closing date of the application window is August 1, 2020 at midnight Pacific Time.
The program will run from roughly September to December or 10 to 12 weeks.
