Is there a journalism challenge you or your newsroom has wanted to tackle, but haven’t had the time or resources to focus on the idea? Could the project benefit the industry as a whole in some way and strengthen democracy through better journalism?
If you answered ‘yes’ to both of those questions, then consider applying for a 2020–21 fellowship at the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute at the Missouri School of Journalism
“We are looking for projects that are innovative, practical and useful to journalists and newsrooms worldwide,” says Kat Duncan, RJI’s interim director of innovation. “We want to fund ideas that will not only accomplish something that the individual or organization believes in, but that can help the industry too.”
Fellows can either work on projects themselves or work directly with an organization on a project with an institutional fellowship through RJI’s flexible fellowship options.
