Are you a young journalist with at least five years of professional experience? Are you interested in digital skills? If the response is yes, then apply for Kiplinger Fellowship In Digital Media.
The Kiplinger Program in Public Affairs Journalism at Ohio University seeks innovative journalists with a strong desire to reboot their digital skills. You need at least five years of professional experience to apply (yes, internships count).
Selected Fellows will spend a week at Ohio University, a beautiful main campus in Athens, and get serious training led by national experts. They will take a main focus on using digital and social media to build a stronger following, develop new sources and boost their reporting. This program will help journalists to sharpen reporting skills to hold government and institutions accountable.
They will be using Twitter, deep Web searches, crowdsourcing, public records, spreadsheets, videography, data visualization, and the latest digital tools and tactics.
In 2019, 20 fellows will be hosted for the week-long training. The fellowship will cover a variety of relevant digital media topics such as cybersecurity for journalists, mobile videography, data journalism and data visualization, social media sleuthing, ethical and legal issues as well as specific topics selected by our granted fellows
