ProPublica’s mission is to shine a light on abuses of power, producing stories of moral force that provoke change. There are currently few minority reporters who specialize in investigations. Without more such voices, visions and points of view, there is every reason to believe that important stories are being overlooked.
ProPublica is currently accepting applications from full-time college students of color for a paid emerging reporters program. The non-profit investigative newsroom is offering stipends of $4,500 per semester for one year to five minority students who work or want to work at college journalism outlets. The students will also receive ongoing mentoring from ProPublica’s reporters and editors, and will visit the new organization’s New York newsroom for a week. Hotel accommodations for the week in New York will be provided by the fellowship program. Learn more and check out this FAQ.
