Now in its fifth year, the HBCU Digital Media Fellowship is an exciting opportunity for five students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) to receive an expenses-paid trip to ONA18 and get hands-on reporting experience during the conference.
Fellows are embedded in the ONA18 Student Newsroom and Innovation Lab and work closely with mentors Michael Grant, Creative Director, San Francisco Business Times and 2017-18 John S. Knight Fellow at Stanford University, and Michelle Johnson, chair of the Student Newsroom and Associate Professor of Practice, Multimedia Journalism, at Boston University. They receive hands-on training and produce multimedia coverages for the conference.
Applications are due Aug. 2, 2018, at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Five fellows will receive:
- Registration, travel, accommodations and some meals for ONA18 and the Online Journalism Awards Ceremony
- Hands-on experience producing digital media for the conference, working alongside mentors and the Student Newsroom
- Customized training, group workshops, resume coaching and guest speakers
