In less than two weeks, 21 journalists from around the globe will arrive in Columbus, Ohio and Ohio State University to take part in the 44th annual Kiplinger Fellowship Week. Kip Camp is April 22-28.
This year’s Fellows hail from such faraway places as Afghanistan, Singapore, Australia, Spain and Alaska, as well as little, old Yellow Spring, Ohio, a short drive to OSU. We have representatives from HBO, Agence France-Presse, as well at the Washington Post, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Associated Press and media outlets from Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Houston, Seattle, Phoenix, Denver, Toronto and Portland, Oregon.
The Fellows will spend one week in Columbus and receive training in data journalism, data visualization, social media management, document research, mobile videography, ethics, digital security, verification processes and virtual reality.
The Fellows will spend a day at the Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University in Athens and also be the guests of honor at a dinner hosted by Experience Columbus. A closing reception is slated for Thursday at the Longaberger Alumni House when the Fellows will meet with local journalists and community leaders.
