Government-funded journalism fellowships are taking off in three states (and counting)


Though the fellowship in New Mexico is short — just nine months — the majority of alumni are currently working full-time in newsrooms across the state.

In New Mexico, recent college grads are matched with newsrooms to complete 9-month fellowships. In California, 40 fellows will work for two years in newsrooms that operate in underserved communities around the state. And the legislature in Washington State just allocated $2.4 million to start its own two-year program to boost local journalism.
