Fellowships

Democracy Now! Fellowships are paid, full-time, temporary work placements to help early career journalists and digital media professionals develop skills and gain experience in a daily live TV news environment. All Fellowships take place at our Manhattan studio where we produce our daily news hour.

Democracy Now! staff provide one-on-one mentorship and supervision to help Fellows maximize their exposure to newsroom, production and online publishing practices. Each Fellowship is offered once per year.
