Student Voice is seeking high school students to join its 2019-2020 cohort of journalism fellows. The Student Voice Journalism Fellowship equips 18 high-school-aged journalists with the tools to tell their schools’ stories and leverages their voices to affect change in the broader educational dialogue.
Student Voice provides journalism fellows with a variety of opportunities to amplify their voices. In addition to professional development and skill training, fellows have access to a network of reporters, storytellers and communications professionals using writing as a tool for change in the education space. Regular feedback from peers and program coordinators is a cornerstone of this fellowship. Journalism fellows share their content through monthly pieces, podcasts, Student Voice’s biannual Schooled magazine, in partner publications and at national education and reporting conferences. In the previous Journalism Fellowship cohort, 14 fellows produced 42 pieces, covering topics ranging from school culture to sex education, engaging over 8,000 people.
Applications open Thursday, August 1, 2019 and close Friday, August 16, 2019. More information is available at StuVoice.org/journalism.
