by opportunitydiary

Application Deadline: Wednesday, Oct. 6

For the third year running, the Solutions Journalism Network is seeking proposals from journalists who are leading or want to lead a project that will produce solutions journalism stories — and take others with them to spread the approach. The LEDE Fellowship is a yearlong opportunity for journalists to conceptualize and execute such projects alongside other entrepreneurs committed to extending the reach of solutions journalism and becoming the face of its future.

Eligibility

  • Ability to execute a project that accelerates the spread of solutions journalism in a community;
  • Commitment to the spirit of “all-teach, all-learn,” capacity to seek out expertise (and offer your own) among peers and constituents;
  • Entrepreneurship, with an inclination to collaborate and “take others with you”;
  • Diversity of identity, geography, experience and role;
  • Deep understanding of journalism and its current challenges;
  • Passion, enthusiasm and curiosity

Application Procedure

Over the course of the fellowship year, January-December 2022, fellows will engage in:

  • Monthly calls with sub-cohorts of four or five other LEDE Fellows with similarly focused or themed projects;
  • Bimonthly calls with the entire cohort of 20 to 25 LEDE Fellows, as well as select guest speakers who will support the fellows’ professional development;
  • Calls twice a year with SJN’s LEDE Fellowship manager, Julia Hotz, to assess progress on project goals;
  • Knowledge-sharing sessions with SJN’s greater network of journalism professionals.
