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.
