Description

Raven Radio’s post-graduate fellowship is a 30-week program intended to bridge the period between the completion of a journalism student’s education and the beginning of his or her career. The Fellowship offers a recent graduate the opportunity to…
-- Gain substantial expertise in a professional newsroom.
-- Refine live broadcast and production skills.
-- Experiment with and develop multi-media production skills.
-- Explore complex news issues in a diverse community, region, and state.
-- Write, edit, and produce sound-rich, in-depth stories for local, state, and national distribution.
-- Establish professional connections to NPR, the Alaska Public Radio Network, National Native News, and other affiliates.

A candidate for this Fellowship has completed an undergraduate or graduate degree program in Journalism or a related field of study, and has acquired competency in news writing and broadcast journalism (or multi-media production) at the academic level. Someone with an M.A. in Journalism from UC Berkeley or Columbia looking to create a professional portfolio and to establish contacts within public broadcasting is a candidate; a college graduate with No prior experience who may be thinking about going into journalism is Not. On the other hand, an established print reporter hoping to transition into broadcast would be considered for the Fellowship.
