United States of America
We hope that this new immersive program will benefit not only the participants and The Times, but other newsrooms. We expect most of our fellows will graduate to positions at other publications.
Creation of the fellowship also means that we plan to retire our existing newsroom summer internship.
We believe the fellowship, which will incorporate speakers, feedback and training opportunities, will better serve young journalists. The fellowship also will target many of the same candidates as the internship: well-qualified recent college graduates and post-grads. These changes will not affect our summer internship program in business departments.
We plan to open an application window later this fall, with our first class of fellows starting in summer 2019. We will post our application link soon at Our Careers.
