WHO SHOULD APPLY:
NPR is looking for a diverse pool of applicants who aspire to work in public radio. Candidates must be just completing college or graduate school, or be out of school for one year or less as of December 31, 2006. They do not need journalism or radio experience, but must demonstrate exceptional potential and drive.
The NPR Kroc Fellowship was established to identify and develop a new generation of extraordinary journalists for the public radio system.
FELLOWSHIP IN BRIEF:
Three Kroc Fellows will be accepted into the program this year. The Fellowship begins on August 20, 2007, and lasts one year. It includes a stipend of more than $37,000, plus benefits, which include paid vacation. Fellows will get rigorous, hands-on training in every aspect of public radio journalism â€” writing, reporting, producing and editing, for both radio and the Web. Kroc Fellows will work primarily at NPR headquarters in Washington D.C., though each Fellowship will include an assignment to an NPR member station.
Applications must be postmarked no later than December 31, 2006. Applicants must also submit a cover letter (that must mention that you saw this on Journalismnext.com), resume, 3 letters of reference, student transcript(s) and a work sample.
