DEADLINE: NAJA Native American Journalism Fellowship and Facebook Journalism Project Scholarship
In order to streamline the application process, NAJA members who are students can complete a single application for both the 2022 Native American Journalism Fellowship and 2022 NAJA Facebook Journalism Project Scholarship. Both programs have the same application, deadline and review process. Students may apply for one or both programs, following eligibility and rules for each as listed below.
Native American Journalism Fellowship
The Native American Journalists Association (NAJA) is now accepting applications for the 2022 Native American Journalism Fellowship through
April 30 extended to May 14. Selected fellows will build their reporting and interpersonal skills in a digital newsroom experience before, during and after the 2022 National Native Media Conference.
The 2022 class of fellows will participate in a virtual curriculum with selected mentors representing broadcast, radio, print and digital media. This innovative experience will be designed to leverage the advantages of online learning while allowing fellows to participate in the National Native Media Conference, network with other Indigenous journalists, and strengthen reporting skills.
In partnership with the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University, NAJA will facilitate a conference program Aug. 24-27 featuring best practices in Indigenous media, training and workshops. Fellows will be encouraged to report on relevant program content and explore deeper coverage of Indigenous issues in order to complete their fellowship requirements.
