The New York Times Fellowship 2019 for Journalists

The New York Times Fellowship, a one-year work program aimed at cultivating the next generation of journalists.

Application Deadline: 19th November, 2018 11:59 p.m., New York time.

Eligible Countries: International

To be taken at (country): USA

About the Award: We hope that this new immersive program will benefit not only the participants and The Times, but other newsrooms. We expect most of our fellows will graduate to positions at other publications.

Creation of the fellowship also means that we plan to retire our existing newsroom summer internship.

We believe the fellowship, which will incorporate speakers, feedback and training opportunities, will better serve budding journalists. The fellowship also will target many of the same candidates as the internship: qualified recent college graduates and postgraduates. These changes will not affect our summer internship program in business departments.

The fellowship will begin in June. The 2019 program will incorporate reporters across a range of sections, as well as journalists in photo, visual investigations, graphics, news design, podcasts, Opinion and The New York Times Magazine.

Type: Fellowship


  • The program is targeted toward recent graduates of college and graduate school who are early in their journalism careers.
  • Applicants must be authorized to work in the United States.

Number of Awards: Size of the first class will be determined at a later date

Value of Award: Fellows will work full time and will be paid and receive benefits. They will be Guild-represented employees.

Duration of Programme: 12 months.
