The application process for the 2019 Kiplinger Fellowship in Digital Media is open.

Beginning Oct. 1 and running until Nov. 18, professional journalists with more than five years of experience may apply for a spot in this coveted fellowship.

The fellowship will run Sunday, April 7 to Friday, April 12 at the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University in Athens. OU is located 80 miles south of Columbus.

Applications will be accepted from U.S. and foreign journalists who properly fill out the application form online and submit it by the deadline.

In 2019 we will host 20 fellows for the week-long training.

The fellowship will cover a variety of relevant digital media topics such as cybersecurity for journalists, mobile videography, data journalism and data visualization, social media sleuthing, ethical and legal issues as well as specific topics selected by our granted fellows.

The process: All applicants must apply online using the Qualtrics process, using the link below. All applications started must be completed in that time session, so please have prepared materials on hand when starting the application. All applications must have a bio, explanation for applying and three work samples. Those who don’t meet these requirements won’t be considered.

The deadline is midnight Sunday, Nov. 18. It will not be extended. The online process stores your application automatically so there is no secondary verification from the Kiplinger staff.

Good luck.
