POLITICO has announced the upcoming session of the POLITICO Journalism Institute (PJI), an educational initiative focused on supporting diversity in Washington newsrooms.
PJI, now in its fourth year, will be held May 30 to June 9, and offers intensive, hands-on training for up to twelve university students interested in covering government and politics.
Two students will be selected for a three-month residency in the POLITICO newsroom where they will write, edit and produce content. The POLITICO Residency Program is now in its fourth year.
Both programs reflect POLITICO’s ongoing support of journalism education and recruitment of top-notch talent.
The Maynard Institute for Journalism Education and American University will once again partner with POLITICO on the development of a curriculum, the selection of student participants and the facilitation of classroom sessions.
Programming will include interactive lectures, panels with industry leaders, mentor-pairings with POLITICO journalists and an opportunity for the students to see their work published by POLITICO.
All costs for PJI participants, including room, board and transportation, will be provided by POLITICO. PJI students split time between American University in Washington, D.C., and POLITICO headquarters in Arlington, Va.
The residencies are paid positions and include a housing allowance.
Institute applicants who are rising juniors or seniors at accredited four-year colleges or universities will be given preference. Student members of minority journalism associations are encouraged to apply.
