Maynard 200 Fellowship journalism program accepting applicants until March 21

The Maynard Institute for Journalism Education, a nonprofit dedicated to expanding the diversity pipeline in the news media and dismantling structural racism in its newsrooms, is accepting applications for its cornerstone Maynard 200 Fellowship. The professional development program provides cutting-edge training and year-long mentorship for storytellers, editors and managers, leaders and media entrepreneurs of diverse backgrounds.

The 2022 program will be held in person during the week of June 27 at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism in Los Angeles, California. Maynard 200 fellows will benefit from tuition-free training and mentorship, plus air travel and lodging expenses will be covered by the Maynard Institute.

The program will continue throughout the summer with a series of virtual webinars. A second week of in-person training will be held the week of October 24. Fellows will then be paired with industry veterans and experts in relevant disciplines in their area of interest to receive one year of one-to-one mentorship through October 2023.

This year’s program will consist of an expanded cohort size of 50 fellows. Applicants can apply to one of four curriculum tracks including investigative storytelling, media entrepreneurship, executive leadership, and frontline editors and managers. Applications will be accepted through March 21. Screening will begin after the application deadline and will continue through March and early-April.

Maynard 200 has been supported by Google News Initiative, the Craig Newmark Philanthropies, The Hearthland Foundation, and The McClatchy Foundation. The Fox Corporation is a confirmed sponsor for the 2022 program.

For more information and guidance on the application process, as well as COVID-19 safety protocols for the in-person training sessions, visit the Maynard Institute website.
