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.

For young journalists who are interested, they can check out NABJ‘s official website here. The amount of participants being selected has not been made clear by Apple and the National Association of Black Journalists, but it is a paid position that comes with a diversity of perks and benefits. Apple recently included 13 app companies in its first-ever Entrepreneur Camp for Black Founders and Developers.
