The Texas Tribune — a nonprofit, nonpartisan digital news organization — offers paid fellowships to college students. The positions are part time in the spring and fall, and full time in the summer. They are based in our Austin newsroom, except for the Washington, D.C., reporting fellowship.
Recent graduates are eligible for the summer program, but spring and fall fellows must be enrolled undergraduate or graduate students while they work at the Tribune. You may apply for more than one position.
We’re hiring fellows to help engage audiences in our politics and policy coverage across platforms. This may include packaging Tribune stories for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram; contributing to our daily newsletters; helping produce live discussions for our readers; and pitching and editing short-form videos or other original content for social readers.
Ideal candidates have:
Solid news judgment and experience reporting and writing on deadline.
Sharp social copywriting skills and experience using social networks for newsgathering.
Experience editing visual stories (including social graphics, audio, video and/or other multimedia). This is not required, but is highly valued.
