The Maynard 200 Fellowship: Empowering Journalists of Color

One of the Maynard Institute’s core programs, the Maynard 200 Fellowship provides advanced training and mentorship to mid-career journalists of color for promoting their career growth and expanded leadership roles.

Maynard 200 is the cornerstone program advancing the Maynard Institute’s efforts to expand the diversity pipeline in news media and dismantle structural racism in its newsrooms. Since 2018, the Maynard Institute has trained over 90 media leaders, storytellers, and entrepreneurs through the fellowship program. In 2022, the program includes exciting updates such as an expanded cohort size, new curriculum track for frontline editors and managers, as well as the return to in-person sessions for two weeks, in late June and late October. Maynard 200 fellows will meet for the first in-person training sessions on June 27th at University of Southern Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism, in Los Angeles, California. COVID-19 safety protocols will be required as detailed below in the FAQs section.
