2019 News Corp Media Fellowship for Global Journalists

Each year, ICFJ and News Corp accept applications from a different region or country, making this opportunity available to a wide range of global journalists.

To complement the four-week fellowship, ICFJ designs a three-day orientation to meet the training needs of each year’s fellows. Past topics have included mobile, investigative and innovative journalism. The participants also meet with media experts to learn more about issues such as press freedom, ethics in the digital age and media law.

The fellowships are tailored to the individual interests and needs of the participating journalists. News Corp editors have, in the past, designed fellowship activities to focus on topics such as data journalism and visualization, audience engagement, business journalism and journalism ethics in the digital age.

English-speaking journalists and editors with 3-5 years of journalistic experience and at least 1-2 years working with data are welcome to apply for the webinar – the first step toward the fellowship.

During the fellowship, the journalist will be embedded for three months in the WSJ’s media science lab to work on a data-driven project relevant to the fellow and tailor-made for the WSJ. The selected News Corp Media Fellow will have the opportunity to work on projects related to:

– Workflow and collaboration in a global newsroom;

– Data science, artificial intelligence and computational journalism;

– New forms of training and internal leadership development;

– Audience surveying and emerging forms of social media analysis.

Prior to the three-month fellowship, ICFJ will host a three-day orientation in Washington D.C., where the fellow will receive training and be prepared to develop his or her own digital projects at the Journal.

The program will cover all travel and fellowship expenses.
