NPR fellowships available
National Public Radio is offering three Kroc Fellowships for 2007-2008 for students who are in their last year of community or four-year college, graduate school, or out of school for one year or less as of Dec. 31.
The fellowships will begin on Aug. 20, 2007 and last one year. Fellows are awarded a stipend of more than $37,000, plus benefits.
Applicants need not have previous radio journalism experience, but must be interested in current events and furthering a career in news.
In the fall of 2003, NPR received a bequest of over $200 million from the estate of philanthropist Joan B. Kroc.
In addition to using the money to expand NPR News, NPR decided to make a commitment to identify and develop the next generation of journalists for the public radio system. From this, the Kroc Fellowships were born.
Application deadline is Dec. 31. Visit www.npr.org/about/fellowships for more information or to download an application.
