The Maynard 200 Fellowship provides professional development training and year-long mentorship for leaders, storytellers, frontline editors and managers, and media entrepreneurs of diverse backgrounds. Fellows benefit from cutting-edge curricula designed and delivered by distinguished faculty across relevant disciplines. Plus, each fellow gains one-to-one mentorship from a veteran media executive or expert that aligns with their relevant discipline.
Maynard 200 is a tuition-free fellowship program and has been supported by our funders including Craig Newmark Philanthropies, Google News Initiative and The Hearthland Foundation. The Fox Corporation is a returning sponsor. In addition, hotel accommodations for fellows will be covered for both in-person training weeks at TCU. Fellows will also be individually reimbursed through the program up to $500 for their airfare and ground transportation each week (up to $1,000 total for both June and October trainings).
In 2023, the Maynard 200 program will select a maximum of 40 fellows across the following four curriculum tracks:
- Investigative Storytellers
- Executive Leaders
- Frontline Editors & Managers
- Media Entrepreneurs & Product Developers
All Maynard 200 fellows will gather in-person in late June atBob Schieffer College of Communication at Texas Christian University (TCU) in Fort Worth, Texas. The second week of training will take place virtually via Zoom in late October. In addition, Maynard 200 fellows will conduct project work that takes place virtually over the 8-week period between trainings.
