Topics covered in the Refine Newsroom & Reporting Fellowship will be tailored to the needs of the participants but may include areas such as the climate emergency, dealing with data and numbers, understanding scientific research, and visualising complex ideas.
Support offered by our membership scheme will again be tailored to the needs of the participants but has previously included workshops on pay rises, becoming an editor, work-life balance, story generation, and much more.
The programme will be spread across three months, starting in January 2023, to make it easy and manageable to fit around your current role and responsibilities. You will leave the scheme with:
- Increased confidence in your reporting and career trajectory;
- New skills you can use daily in the newsroom or freelancing;
- A broadened network across the industry; and
- Bylines you’re proud of in the outlet(s) you already work at.
How To Apply
Applying to the Refine Newsroom & Reporting Fellowship is really simple. All you need to do is fill out this short form telling us how it would benefit you and the kinds of sessions you would be most interested in joining. Please note, you must be a working journalist to apply to this programme and you must be based in the United Kingdom.
Applications will close at 23:59pm on December 11, 2022. This is a competitive process and we are only able to support a limited number of applicants due to funding constraints. We will aim to inform all candidates of the status of their application by January 2023 at the latest.
