Fellows are responsible for travel expenses unless otherwise indicated.
COMMITMENT TO ACTION: We want to make sure the fellows we select will make a difference when they return to their newsroom. In addition to passing along training, we would ask you to develop an action plan for putting what you learn to work for the benefit of your news organization. All application materials must be filled out online.
