Allbritton Journalism Institute Reporting Fellowship Program

Allbritton Journalism Institute Reporting Fellowship Program

AJI is a one-of-a-kind institution in Washington: a nonprofit educational organization that is training the political journalists of the future — and has created a new publication to accomplish that goal. Every September, AJI welcomes a cohort of 10 early-career reporters to D.C. for a two-year fellowship.

Fellows are paid $60,000 per year to take classes with some of the country’s best journalists and to write for AJI’s publication, NOTUS, where they work alongside a staff of established reporters and editors to cover politics, policy and government.

AJI’s Curriculum

The program begins with a four-week immersion course in the practical application of journalism skills, from ethics and newsgathering to writing and distribution. After four weeks, fellows balance ongoing classwork with hands-on experience: reporting and producing stories for NOTUS while honing their skills through seminars, weekly group critiques and staff mentorship. The formal program runs for 18 months, after which fellows are invited to stay for an additional six months as we support them in seeking their next opportunity.

By the end of the program, graduates will have the background necessary to cover
the inner workings of Washington — and will be ready to take on reporting jobs at the country’s best outlets.

Who is Eligible?

We are looking for applicants of all backgrounds who want to work in journalism; who have a keen interest in policy and politics; and who believe journalism can and should play a critical role in our democracy. Some fellows may be just out of school; others may be looking for a career transition; still others may be working journalists who are early in their careers. A passion for journalism is a prerequisite, but actual journalistic experience is not.
