ProPublica, "a nonprofit newsroom that investigates abuses of power," according to its website, invites budding journalists of color to apply for its Emerging Reporters Program, which "provides a $9,000 stipend, along with mentoring and trips to the National Institute for Computer-Assisted Reporting conference and our New York office, for five students each year who work or want to work at college journalism outlets: newspapers, websites, radio stations or TV stations." Thanks to Dr. Heather Harris, professor of communication at Stevenson University, for the LinkedIn tip!
Students who will be juniors or seniors this academic year are eligible to apply, and African Americans, Latinos and other people of color are especially encouraged. Participants must be full-time students during the 2019-20 school year. Applicants must also demonstrate financial need. Interested? Find out more information here.
