Application Deadline: Nov. 29, 2021

Journalists in the United States can apply for a five-day fellowship in Washington.

The National Press Foundation (NPF) is offering the Data and Accountability Journalism Fellowship, Jan. 9 to 13, 2022.  The fellowship will help journalists sharpen their investigative, data analysis and presentation skills.

In addition, this fellowship will offer skills, top sources and best practices to journalists who want to hold federal and state and local governments accountable for how and where taxpayer funds are spent.

The all-expenses-paid program covers airfare, ground transportation, hotel costs and most meals.

Eligibility

For Journalists in the US

Application Procedure

Every journalist selected for this program will be offered the opportunity to pair with a volunteer data scientist, through NPF’s partnership with DataKind DC. Previous NPF fellows found that these partnerships helped them execute complex, data-driven investigative stories.

The all-expenses-paid program covers airfare, ground transportation, hotel costs and most meals.

This fellowship is for U.S.-based journalists only. We greatly value diversity in all our programs and particularly seek applications from local and nonprofit news organizations, journalists covering communities that have been disproportionately hurt by the pandemic; Black, Indigenous and other journalists of color; and those attempting to do public-interest reporting about news deserts.

The program will be offered in person, adhering to prevailing social distancing guidance. We can only accept fully vaccinated fellows.
