Partner University Programs
Carnegie-Knight News21 is a national reporting initiative headquartered at the Cronkite School, which brings top journalism students from across the country to report and produce in-depth, multimedia projects for major outlets, including The Washington Post, NBC News and USA Today.
Students selected for the News 21 program study a topic in-depth during a spring video-conferenced topics seminar, followed by a 10-week reporting fellowship during the summer. Students work out of a newsroom at the Cronkite School and travel the country – and sometimes other countries – to report and produce their projects.
The program is led by Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Jacquee Petchel.
