The Native American Journalists Association is pleased to announce an exciting program in partnership with the Newseum Institute.
The goal is to help prepare Native American journalism students to enter the workforce by combining the expertise gained from two established programs: the former American Indian Journalism Institute, which was managed and funded by the Newseum Institute; and the Native American Journalists Association’s college student projects held at the annual NAJA conference. The two initiatives are melded into a single program designed to give students a range of journalism experiences during a one-year period.
Your Contribution is Important
NAJA is asking for your support in launching the pilot project through a crowdfunding campaign, hosted by Indiegogo.
As a funder of the 2014 NAJ Fellowship campaign, NAJA members, partners and supporters can take advantage of perks at every level of giving, starting at just $20. As a "thank-you" for supporting our project at this level, funders will receive a social media shoutout! Check out the other funder perks, too.
NAJA's goal is to raise $10,000 from members, partners and individuals to make the first year of the NAJ Fellowship a success. (Note: This amount has been amended since the video pitch was produced.) Every dollar raised goes toward supporting these Native journalists so please contribute at a level that is meaningful to you.
- All funds raised will be used to support the travel, lodging, meals and technical support of the 2014 student projects.
- If NAJA doesn't meet the $10,000 mark, all donations will still be applied to students' travel expenses to Santa Clara, CA from all over the U.S.
Every level of support is important. Even if you can't part with the cash, sharing this project with your personal and professional connections through social media can still make a great impact on the lives of Native students looking to change the world of journalism.
Mvto (thank you) for your support of Native journalism and the 2014 Native American Journalism Fellowship program!
