The NPR Kroc Fellowship is a year-long program designed to identify and develop the next generation of extraordinary public media journalists. Fellows are selected each year and receive hands-on training in audio and digital journalism, including writing, reporting, producing and editing.
The fellowship begins each year in late August/early September and lasts 12 months. Fellows receive a stipend of more than $45,000 and benefits, including paid vacation.
- While the ideal Kroc Fellow aspires to work in public media, previous journalism or public radio experience is not required.
- Fellows must be able to demonstrate exceptional potential and drive.
- Recent graduates who have earned an undergraduate or graduate degree on or after Jan. 1 of the application year
- Current students who expect to earn an undergraduate or graduate degree in the spring before the fellowship begins in August.
- Foreign nationals are encouraged to apply but must have appropriate employment authorizations.
