Hearst Journalism Fellowships 2020 for Journalists in the US

Deadline: February 16, 2020

Applications are invited for the Hearst Journalism Fellowships 2020 for Journalists in the US. This is the premier two-year newspaper fellowship in the country. Their goal is to recruit, train and retain the best of the next generation of journalists – top-notch multi-media professionals with a broad range of skills.

The Fellowship program consists of two 12-month rotations at their top metro papers – San Francisco, Houston, San Antonio, Albany, and/or New Haven. Fellows are full-fledged journalists expected to make significant, valuable contributions in a variety of roles and platforms. There is no better place to start.

Tomorrow’s journalists won’t be satisfied by simply telling stories; they will be creating immersive experiences that let audiences get involved with their reporting. The forward-thinking tools you’ll need are being used at Hearst today.

If you have the skills, passion and determination to be a journalist of the future – a trained professional who knows a good story and who has the talent and confidence to tell it in a way that best imparts its relevance and importance to news consumers – the Hearst Fellowship might be perfect for you.


  • Fellows will receive training, mentoring and real-world experience alongside top journalists who are using cutting-edge tools to tell stories through data, video, and more.
  • Hearst Fellows are full-time employees with competitive salary and benefits, including health insurance and moving expenses.


  • Open to journalists in the United States.
