Jewish Currents, PROTOCOLS, Judaism Unbound, the Jewish Women’s Archive (JWA), and the New York Jewish Week will each host one student fellow from January, 2019 through December, 2019. Each fellow will have the opportunity to work closely with the team at their placement, as well as receive direct mentorship from New Voices’ editor in chief.
The fellows’ tasks at their placements will vary. Some will do investigative research; others will focus on podcast production or art and design curation. In addition, they will each get to work on one in-depth, year-long project of their choosing for publication in New Voices.
The fellows will get to know each other through bi-weekly virtual meetings and workshops with their cohort. Workshops can be tailored to the fellows’ interests, but may include topics such as pitching, feature writing, and multimedia skills.
Fellows will also be offered the opportunity to meet their cohort in person at the annual Jewish Student Journalism Conference in the spring.
Fellows will be expected to commit an average of 8 hours a week to the program. Some placements require or recommend the fellow work in-office, while others are open to their fellow working remotely from anywhere.
Fellows will receive a stipend of $400 a semester, $800 total.
Applicants should currently be enrolled at a college or university in the US or Canada. Current seniors are eligible to apply.
Jews of color, Mizrachi and Sephardic Jews, and queer/trans Jews are strongly encouraged to apply.
You may apply to as many of the fellowship positions as you would like. However, you must submit a separate Google form application for each position. After applying to one position, you will have the option to submit another response.
Each application is different. Please familiarize yourself with the media organizations you are applying to work with. To be considered for a fellowship position, submit your application(s) no later than December 7th, 2018.
