California Local News Fellowship
We are seeking early-career digital, print, video, audio, photo and multimedia journalists for the California Local News Fellowship program. Our fellows earn a full-time salary and benefits from the University of California for two years and receive intensive mentoring, training and support from experienced journalism leaders.
We’re interested in candidates with relevant experience as much as formal education. Successful applicants will demonstrate core reporting skills, a commitment to a career in journalism and an interest in reporting in underserved communities. Find the list of newsrooms where our 2024–2026 fellows will be based.
Join us for our final info session before the deadline:
Wednesday, Feb. 21, 3 pm PST on Zoom.
