UNITY offers student fellowship to attend minority journalists’ conferences

UNITY: Journalists for Diversity will select one student to attend five minority journalists conferences this summer as part of a new fellowship offered by the journalists’ alliance.

The chosen candidate will participate in student projects at the gatherings of UNITY’s member groups — the Native American Journalists Association, Asian American Journalists Association and the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association — as well as its partners, the National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists.

“The student fellow will participate in convention training that will include interactive online courses in interviewing, multimedia, ethics, and visual and audio techniques,” UNITY said on its website.

Travel and hotel rooms for the student will be covered.

Full-time undergraduate and graduate students 18 years or older with a serious interest in pursuing a journalism career may apply. Recent graduates are also eligible. More details about the fellowship are posted on the UNITY website.

The deadline for applying is May 30.
