Talent Scout Series 2024: Allbritton Journalism Institute
MVJ’s Talent Scout Series is back! Join us for the first session on February 15 to engage with the Allbritton Journalism Institute amidst their current round of fellowship applications.
The Allbritton Journalism Institute (AJI) is a one-of-a-kind institution in Washington: a nonprofit educational organization that is training the political journalists of the future — and has created a new publication to accomplish that goal. Backed by Robert Allbritton, the founding publisher of Politico, the institute is staffed by a group of veteran journalists who are committed to improving journalism and democracy. Like Robert Allbritton, AJI’s staff members care deeply about restoring journalism’s critical role in national conversation while expanding opportunities for aspiring journalists with different backgrounds and beliefs.
This year, the Allbritton Journalism Institute will offer $60,000 annual stipends to 10 aspiring/early-career reporters for a two-year D.C.-based fellowship. Participants will attend classes with some of the country’s best journalists and hone their skills by working alongside established reporters and editors to report for NOTUS – a new, non-partisan publication that covers government, policy and politics.
The program begins this September, and applications are due March 4. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more and engage with AJI Director of Admissions Richard Just and current AJI fellow (and MVJ member) John T. Seward!
