States Newsroom

Deadline: Thursday, Oct. 31, 2024

Wage: Paid

Instructions:

Generations of structural inequities, such as racism, misogyny, homophobia, and ableism, have led to discriminatory policies and practices that limited who could become journalists. Most news organizations are primarily white and male, according to a 2018 article by the Pew Research Center. Today’s early-career professionals from historically underrepresented backgrounds are not only confronted with limited career prospects, they have few opportunities to cover the government decisions that affect their communities. States Newsroom wants to change that!

The Capital Reporting Fellowship is a summer program that places students and new journalists in our newsrooms across the country. Whether you are an advocacy-minded student, a journalist-to-be who needs help honing your truth-telling skills, or a strong writer who is considering reporting as a career path, your participation in state government coverage matters more now than ever before. This is an opportunity to develop a skill set to hold elected officials accountable for what happens in statehouses across the United States.
