The Newmark-Military Veterans in Journalism Fellowship Program is now accepting applications for the program that will begin in Fall 2022.
Application fee waived!
**Application deadline is Friday, December 17,2021.**
Two military veterans will be awarded nine-month fellowships at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY.
MVJ and Newmark J-School will recruit veterans to attend the school’s 16-month M.A. in Journalism, M.A. in Engagement Journalism or M.A. in Journalism with a bilingual concentration.
Immediately following their graduation from Newmark’s journalism degree program, selected applicants will receive nine months of paid employment in a newsroom and a workshop in New York designed to provide career and networking opportunities.
The veterans will be hired by newsrooms that are members of INN — a national network of nonprofit, nonpartisan news organizations. The fellowships will allow these individuals to build portfolios of journalistic work and form a network of peers.
The program will provide the veteran graduates with a salary of $4,000 per month with healthcare benefits working in the newsroom.
Those veterans selected will start attending the program starting in the Fall of 2022.
If you are a veteran interested in furthering your journalism career, or you wish to build portfolios of journalistic work and form a network of peers, please consider applying below.
