NAJA calls for 2015-2016 Native American Journalism Fellowship applications

March 20th, 2015 All Day - April 17th, 2015

NAJA’s Native American Journalism Fellowship is an opportunity for college and graduate students to deepen their reporting and multimedia skills, while learning from tribal journalists and news industry professionals from across the country. The topical focus for this year's fellowship will be election reporting, as the country gears up for the 2016 presidential election. Students will also report on issues surrounding the 2015 National Native Media Conference in Washington, D.C., July 9-12.

The NAJF student application deadline is April 17. The NAJF mentor application deadline is April 30.

NAJF is a partnership between NAJA, the University of Montana and the Newseum Institute. The fellowship is an extension of NAJA's former Native Voice program for college and graduate students.
