Applications Open for 2024–26 New York Times Editing Residency

The New York Times has opened applications for its Editing Residency, a one-of-a-kind program aimed at cultivating the next generation of editors.

Residents work full time for two years across a range of desks in the newsroom. They are paid, receive benefits and attend dedicated training and speaker programs at The Times. We plan to welcome three new residents this year. Our goal is to recruit candidates of diverse backgrounds and give them the tools and experiences they need to help shape journalism. The most competitive candidates will have professional journalism experience and show a commitment to learning the craft of editing.

The deadline to submit an application is 5 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, May 30, after which the program directors and editors across the newsroom will collaborate to choose the new residents. The residency begins in November.

Pulitzer Center Machine Learning Reporting Grants

The Pulitzer Center encourages proposals that use advanced data mining techniques, such as machine learning and natural language processing, to solve a data or reporting problem related to a journalistic investigation.

We’re seeking compelling data-driven storytelling—based on original and transparent data collection and analysis—that has the potential to shape public discourse and hold the powerful accountable.

We will consider projects of any scope and size. Please choose a team leader to submit the proposal, and submit only one project per journalist, data team, or newsroom.

This grant opportunity is now open, and applications will be reviewed on a first-come, rolling basis.
