The fellowship includes a stipend and Fellows will be part of the Medill School of Journalism community at Northwestern University, with access to training and advising from Medill faculty as well as other journalism training opportunities.
Media experience in a professional, independent or grassroots capacity is preferred; we are also seeking fellows with a deep personal interest in and/or experience with mental health issues.
