AJI is now accepting applications for its 2024 Reporting Fellowship Program. Apply here.

AJI Reporting Fellow
Class of 2024-2026

Application Deadline: March 4, 11:59 p.m. EST

Thank you for your interest in the 2024-26 AJI Reporting Fellowship, which will begin in September. The below application is due by 11:59 p.m. EST on March 4.

The fellowship offers aspiring journalists a two-year educational program that prepares them for careers as credible, non-partisan reporters in the nation’s capital or wherever their work may take them. Students learn core skills from respected professional reporters and editors in a classroom setting, and they gain real-world experience by working as reporters at AJI’s publication, NOTUS. Students are paid an annual stipend of $60,000 so that they can live in the D.C. area and devote their attention and energy to the fellowship. More information about the fellowship — including testimonials from current fellows and bios of AJI faculty — can be found on the dropdown menu at the top of this page, and you can read NOTUS here.

We plan to review applications in March and April, selecting a group of finalists to interview. We expect to tell all applicants in April whether they are moving on to the interview round. And we expect to complete interviews and notify finalists of our decisions in May.

All applicants must have U.S. work authorization in order to be eligible for this fellowship. AJI fellows are not eligible for employment-based visa sponsorship.

If you have any questions about the program or the application, please contact us at admissions@aji.org. We look forward to reading your application.
