California Local News Fellowship Newsrooms

The fellowship program seeks newsroom applicants from throughout the state that are committed to producing original local news coverage. We prioritize news organizations operating in underserved communities, including for-profit, nonprofit, public media, and community and ethnic media outlets.

Partner newsrooms will demonstrate that they are committed to professional journalistic ethics, understand and seek to meet their audiences’ information needs, and support diversity and inclusion in their organizations. Successful newsroom applicants are able to articulate a clear plan for the fellow’s role and how they will support the fellow editorially and professionally.
