ProPublica has a vested interest in developing more minority journalists. The mission is to shine a light on abuses of power, producing stories of moral force that provoke change. There are currently few minority reporters who specialize in investigations. Without their voices, visions and points of view, there is every reason to believe that important stories are being overlooked.

ProPublica believe the best way to bring about meaningful change is to take a holistic approach, tackling the obstacles that dissuade minorities from pursuing careers in journalism — especially investigative journalism.

To that end, the Emerging Reporters program provides $4,500-per-semester stipends, along with mentoring, and trips to the National Institute for Computer-Assisted Reporting conference and our New York office, for five college students each year who work or want to work at college journalism outlets — newspapers, websites, radio stations or TV stations.

Requirements:

  • The Emerging Reporters program is specifically designed for African Americans, Latinos and other people of color. It is only for current undergraduate or graduate students taking full-time classes in the 2017-18 academic year and those who can demonstrate financial need.
  • The purpose of the stipends is to make college journalism accessible to students for whom it would otherwise be economically out of reach.

How to Apply:

Please fill out this form with a paragraph explaining your interest in the program, your resume, three writing samples, which can be published or unpublished work (photos, videos, graphics, writing or non-journalistic work accepted) and a paragraph describing how this stipend would allow you to do journalism that would otherwise be beyond your financial means. Two important notes:

  • Applications can be sent in either English or Spanish.
  • Please do not email your applications.
