Opportunity Description

The Washington Post and American University are continuing their long-standing fellowship program, which allows mid-career journalists to earn a Master's degree while working on the Metro staff of The Washington Post. The Post is one of the world's premier news organizations. While earning an advanced degree, the AU fellow will help cover greater Washington, an increasingly diverse region that includes the nation's capital and its suburbs in Maryland and Virginia, including both state capital bureaus. With around 60 reporters, The Washington Post's local staff is the region's dominant news gathering organization. Post reporters cover government, politics, crime, social issues, transportation, development, and education; they write feature and trend stories; they investigate major local institutions; and they blog, shoot video, chat online and work intensively with databases. The yearlong fellowship begins in August.
