Newsroom applications are now open!
Apply to host one or more emerging journalists through Report for America for 2020-2021. Deadline: September 30.
For 2019, we placed 61 extraordinary journalists in 50 newsrooms spanning 28 states and Puerto Rico to help news organizations report on under-covered topics and communities. (We pay half their salary; newsrooms and local donors pay the other half.) Newsrooms include Pulitzer Prize winning newspapers, public radio stations, digital-first non-profit outlets, the Associated Press, weekly papers, ethnic news organizations, and a local TV station.
For 2020-21, we aim to field 250 journalists. We’d love to partner with your newsroom.
