Share Article

Hearst Fellowships jump-start great careers in journalism. The experience built as a Hearst Fellow is the start of a very solid foundation for a career in journalism.

The objective of the Hearst Journalism Fellowships is to recruit, train and retain talented journalists of diverse backgrounds. We are looking to help develop excellent multimedia professionals from the country's best reporters, copy editors, photographers, designers and graphic artists. Candidates should be college graduates or others with interest, experience or background in journalism or related fields. Those selected will have the opportunity to grow in one of the world’s best journalism organizations.

A panel of journalism professionals will review applications and select finalists. Finalists will participate in a two-day interview process at the Houston Chronicle in April at which time Hearst Fellows will be selected. Hearst Newspapers covers all domestic travel costs for the interviews.

Program features and benefits
The Fellowship is a biennial, 18-month program focusing on multimedia journalism. The Fellowship program consists of two 9-month rotations at our top metro papers. Throughout the program, Fellows will receive formal training, mentoring and work experience alongside award-winning journalists. Hearst Fellows are paid, full-time employees of Hearst Newspapers.

What it could mean to your future
You may be offered a job at the end of the 18-month program. While participation in the program is not a guarantee of future employment, our goal is to recruit candidates who eventually will join our full-time professional staff. All of us at Hearst Fellowships have an investment in your future... and in the future of Hearst Newspapers.

All applications must arrive by January 6, 2012. Please make sure you allow time for the mailing of your application and materials. No applications will be accepted online.
