Newsroom-based reporting fellowships for early-career journalists

In partnership with The Walkley Foundation

The JNI Opportunity Fellowships will give talented early-career journalists and individuals from diverse backgrounds wanting to enter the profession the chance to develop their journalism careers through an opportunity to work in a newsroom, build connections, and undertake substantive reporting at the host organisation’s direction.

Three twelve-week fellowships are available in 2021 and each will take place in different cities:

  • Melbourne — 9News, The Age and 3AW.
  • Sydney — Guardian Australia.
  • Brisbane — Ten News First and The Courier-Mail.

The newsrooms will provide the recipients with support and guidance, including an experienced journalist to mentor them throughout the duration of the fellowship.

Recipients will receive a stipend of $10,000 to cover living expenses, such as travel & accommodation, for the duration of the fellowship.
