VICE Media and the Center for Communication are launching a fellowship program, open to students across the country, that will place two journalism students from underrepresented communities at VICE in the Summer of 2016.
Participants in the program will intern at VICE for eight weeks during the summer and will also have opportunities to engage with other media organizations, arranged by the Center for Communication. The fellowship will cover travel, housing, and offer a $5,000 stipend for the fellows.
While at VICE, fellows will receive individual instruction and guidance from award‐ winning journalists, producers, and editors. Fellows will also have access to VICE’s state of the art edit suites, production studios and will be encouraged to create and present their own work for review at the end of the program. The Center will also organize three On Location events for the fellows to serve as an introduction to the NYC media landscape.
This fellowship is part of a series of initiatives designed to advance both organizations’ commitment to diversifying the media landscape and ensure greater access to careers in journalism for the next generation of innovative storytellers.
