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 get experience interviewing on radio or television?

Started in 2019, the NeW Student Media Fellowship is an opportunity to learn how to excel in media interviews, write an article for publication, and potentially do a live radio or TV interview.

During the 4-month semester-long program, you will not only get hands-on experience, but you will get individual personalized training and coaching from NeW staff, who together bring years of experience in writing, pitching, and interviewing.

The fellowship is designed to give you training that can help you in your career and is not taught in the classroom.

“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.

Here are some articles by past fellows:

Where Are The Conservative Women In Hollywood?
Leave the politics out of children’s board games
Conservative women vote too
Partisanship Has No Place in Education
Can we just cancel the ‘cancel culture’?

The fellowship is offered twice a year during the fall semester (August-December) and spring semester (January-May).
