Politico has launched a competitive program that will offer four enterprising journalists or other professionals a front-row seat covering the biggest storylines dominating Washington.
In partnership with the National Association of Black Journalists, the 12-month program is intended to train professionals who might not have gotten the opportunity to cover the White House, Congress and policy areas such as health care, trade, technology and finance. Reporting opportunities will include in-depth exploration of how key issues impact underrepresented communities.
Participants will receive total compensation of $60,000, plus benefits, and will be invited for a full-time reporting role at Politico upon successful completion of the program. This professional fellowship program also features monthly workshops, mentoring and other training as well as editorial rotations for career exploration.
Candidates with strong writing and analytical skills, a passion for politics or policy, the ability to work well with others and a desire to learn and grow at the premier news organization covering politics and policy in the United States are encouraged to apply.
Politico will select an NABJ member for one of four slots. Two fellows will be chosen to begin in January and two fellows will begin in June.
All applications must be completed and submitted by Monday, Nov. 30, 2020. Click here to apply.
