Call for Entries: Media Diversity Aus summer fellowships

Media Diversity Australia is calling for expressions of interest from students in their final year or graduates who have completed a media and communications degree OR have experience in a news related role (e.g. a student newspaper) and are keen to get industry experience at a mainstream media outlet over the summer break.

The project aims to place final-year students or recent graduates in 14 media outlets nationwide. The Fellowship recipients will receive a weekly stipend to cover living expenses for the Fellowship duration.

The Fellowship will take place for five weeks full-time: Monday, January 15, until Friday, February 16, 2024. The Fellowship recipients will be mentored and supported by an MDA Mentor.

Fellowships will take place at one outlet for the duration of the placement. Applicants can express interest in working at a specific outlet, but Media Diversity Australia and the host newsroom decide their placement.
