Student Media Fellowship

Want to find out more about what it takes to be in the media? Are you looking to improve your writing or public speaking skills?

The NeW Student Media Fellowship is an exclusive opportunity to learn how to excel in media interviews, write an article for publication, and present your viewpoint effectively. Students will expand their knowledge and media skills whether they want to focus more on print media or live media hits and interviews. Participants will have the chance to have an article published and/or participate in a live interview as the capstone project for the Program.

During the program you will get personalized training and coaching from NeW staff members and outside writers and pundits, who together bring years of experience in writing, pitching, and being interviewed.

The Fellowship is designed to give you training not taught in the classroom, that will help you in your career.

“I feel as if I’ve really sharpened my perspective of how to write an op-ed through the NeW Student Media Fellowship, especially coming from an academic background that isn’t communications or journalism based.” – Jamie LeVie, Spring 2020 Student Media Fellow

Fellows have gone on to get jobs and internships in the media, at Fox News, The Federalist, The Daily Caller, and The Daily Signal, as well as communications positions on high level political campaigns and for elected officials. Join this elite alumna group by applying today.

The fellowship is now being offered once a year from January until May. Meetings take place virtually once a month on Tuesday evenings at 8 p.m. 

The 2024 Fellowship is currently closed. Please keep checking this page for news about the 2025 Fellowship.
