The Center for Public Integrity is hiring — and we’re looking for ambitious postgraduates for a new, year-long investigative journalism fellowship.
Made possible by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the fellow will work with our Pulitzer Prize-winning environment and labor team to focus on issues disproportionately affecting communities of color across the country.
The fellow will help produce powerful, character-driven investigative stories that highlight regulatory lapses and corporate misconduct across the country that threaten public health and the natural environment, especially in minority communities.
The fellowship is part of a multi-year initiative to enhance diversity at the Center and develop a pipeline of journalists of color with deep investigative reporting skills.
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation grant of $600,000 over three years is part of the Center’s ten-year goal to have the newsroom better approximate — and more consistently cover — the growing diversity of America.
The fellowship posting for candidates with full details can be found here. Application deadline is October 3, 2014.
The Center is one of the oldest and largest nonpartisan, nonprofit investigative news organizations and seeks to increase diversity both within the organization and in the broader field of journalism. The Center for Public Integrity is a leader in the sector of investigative journalism, with a strong role in preparing young investigative journalists.
