Apple has announced that the company is joining hands with the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) to start an editorial fellowship program. The idea behind the program is to provide young journalists the opportunity and experience to work at the spearhead of news and technology.
The application shows that the people who are a part of the fellowship will obtain the possibility to work with the Apple News editorial team along with editors from publishers on the company’s platform.
Apple supports Black Journalists by launching an Editorial Fellowship Program
The new editorial fellowship will commence from June 2021 till February 2022. Apple and the National Association of Black Journalists described the program as a way to provide key access to key editorial areas like aggregating top stories, audio, and more.
The program is designed to give exposure to each of the key editorial areas (e.g.,Top Stories, Spotlight, Audio, etc.). After three months’ rotation, the selected candidate and mentors from Apple News will select a single focus area for the remainder of the program. They will also spearhead at least one independent project, with support from the team leader and their manager, which they will be invited to present to the full Apple News editorial team.
There are two exciting parts to the program. One, the participants will have the opportunity to give a presentation at the end of the fellowship to the Apple News editorial team. The other part is a one-week paid visit to the Apple News offices in Cupertino or New York City.
We’re proud to launch an editorial fellowship in partnership with the National Association of Black Journalists (@NABJ) to give early-career journalists the opportunity to work at the forefront of news and technology. Learn more and apply here: https://t.co/jOmc0ytkik
