Application Deadline: April 1st 2019
The Google News Initiative Fellowship connects students who want to explore the intersection between journalism and technology with news organisations.
The successful candidates will kick off their careers in the news industry by spending their summer working with experts in newsrooms and creating a professional network.
In 2019 the European Journalism Centre offers 40 fellowship placements in 11 European countries. The GNI Fellowship is funded by the Google News Initiative and is also available worldwide.
The GNI Fellowship is for students who are enrolled in or accepted for an accredited higher education institution in the same country as their newsroom of choice; or if they are from the country where the newsroom is based. This includes undergraduate, master, and PhD students.
We accept both full-time and part-time students, as long as the
candidate is enrolled in an accredited higher education institution as
of 1 January 2019. It is the individual student’s responsibility to
ensure that he or she is legally permitted to work in the country where
he or she applies.
You may only apply to one organisation.
The Google News Initiative Fellowship offers paid summer placements to journalism, technology or design students who want to gain valuable work experience and build lifelong contacts. This is a unique opportunity that can allow you to kick-start a career in the news industry.
Fellows will be able to learn from experts and connect with other
students from across Europe. Depending on the needs of each newsroom,
our fellows will research and write stories, contribute to open source
data projects, create visuals and interactives, and look into data to
accurately frame public debate.
