2023-2024 NM Local News Fellowships & Internships Application for Newsrooms
The University of New Mexico Department of Communication & Journalism, working in collaboration with NMSU and ENMU, seeks newsrooms to host full-time local news fellows and part-time summer news interns.

The FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM recruits four host newsrooms and matches them with four recent graduates for a 9-month, full-time, paid apprenticeship running from June 2023 to March 2024.

The INTERNSHIP PROGRAM recruits three host newsrooms and matches them with three current students for an 8-week summer paid internship running from June to August 2023.

This application serves both programs. The deadline for newsrooms to apply is Monday, Jan. 30, 2023.

The program is funded by a grant from the New Mexico Local News Fund.
