DEADLINE: IJA Indigenous Journalism Fellowship

Event Date: 
March 5, 2024

The Indigenous Journalists Association (IJA) is committed to increasing the representation of Indigenous journalists in mainstream media. One of the ways IJA supports and empowers members is through the annual Indigenous Journalism Fellowship (IJF), which is open to current Indigenous, American Indian, Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian, First Nations and Métis college students, undergraduate and graduate, pursuing media degrees.

IJF is an opportunity for students to deepen and broaden their reporting and multimedia skills, while learning from tribal journalists and news industry professionals from across the country.

Student fellows will work with mentors to produce coverage throughout the year. Several visiting mentors will provide specific digital skills training during the onsite newsroom experience.

Thanks to the support from sponsors and sustaining members, all student travel expenses including airfare, food and accommodations are covered by IJA for the newsroom immersion experience.

Deadline: Mar 5, 2024
