For more than a century, The New York Times has invested deeply in new talent and launched careers that have led to Pulitzer Prizes and top careers in media. Spotting and lifting journalism’s next generation is a passion of ours. It’s also a responsibility we regard as both sacred and pressing.
So we are thrilled to introduce The New York Times Fellowship, a one-year work program aimed at cultivating the next generation of journalists. It will include reporters, photographers, videographers, social and audio producers, designers and visual editors.
We hope that this new immersive program will benefit not only the participants and The Times, but other newsrooms. We expect most of our fellows will graduate to positions at other publications.
Creation of the fellowship also means that we plan to retire our existing newsroom summer internship.
We believe the fellowship, which will incorporate speakers, feedback and training opportunities, will better serve budding journalists. The fellowship also will target many of the same candidates as the internship: qualified recent college graduates and postgraduates. These changes will not affect our summer internship program in business departments.
The fellowship will begin in June. The 2019 program will incorporate reporters across a range of sections, as well as journalists in photo, visual investigations, graphics, news design, podcasts, Opinion and The New York Times Magazine.
The following fellowships are available:
The program is targeted toward recent graduates of college and graduate school who are early in their journalism careers. Applicants must be authorized to work in the United States.
