Village Voice Media, in conjunction with the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University, is offering an intensive, eight-week, paid summer fellowship for minority students concentrating on web and digital media.
Digital fellows will be immersed in blogging, photography, video, audio and social media and will produce original reported material for Village Voice online publications.
Program instructors will include top Cronkite faculty as well as the nation’s leading news, music and food writers from the Village Voice family of 18 websites and newspapers.
Fellows will be paid $500 per week. Housing will be provided to non-ASU students. The program is open to students who are within one year of graduation, graduate students or post grads.
Fellows may ultimately be considered for positions within the Village Voice family of publications.
The course runs from June 18 to Aug. 10, 2012, at Cronkite’s state-of-the-art journalism school in the heart of downtown Phoenix.
Students applying should be within one year of graduation, graduate students or post-grads.
The program is open to any university student, although those who are studying journalism or have experience in journalism will be given preference. The application deadline is Feb. 24, 2012 at close of business Arizona time. Those accepted will be notified by March 9, 2012.
To apply, send your contact information, cover letter, resume, the names of two references with contact information, three to five work samples and a recent photo attention:
