The Internet search giant has partnered with the Knight Foundation and many nonprofit journalism outlets to create the Google Journalism Fellowship, which will place undergraduate and graduate journalism students in various newsrooms for a summer with a focus on creating data-driven journalism. Fellows will receive a stipend of $7,500 for 10 weeks between June and August, along with a travel budget of $1,000. The first week of the fellowship will be spent at the Knight Foundation in Florida; the last week will be spent at Google headquarters in California; and in between, the fellows will work at their host organizations.
Among the journalism nonprofits where fellows could wind up: ProPublica, the Poynter Institute, the Center for Investigative Reporting, Harvard University’s Nieman Journalism Lab, the Pew Research Center and the Committee to Protect Journalists. A complete list of participating organizations and the focus areas at each can be found here. The application deadline is Jan. 31, 2013.
