The MJ Bear Fellowships identify and celebrate digital journalists under 30 whose work represents the best of new media.

Application Deadline: 20th July 2017

Offered Annually? Yes

About the Award: Each year, ONA recognizes three fellows— two in the United States or Canada and one international. The fellows are up-and-coming journalists who are just beginning to make their voices heard in the industry and working to expand the boundaries of digital news.

Fellows are focused on developing a digital project, which might include experiments in social media, a unique approach to news coverage, creative data visualizations or other digital approaches. Through the course of the one-year fellowship, these early-career journalists receive guidance from industry leaders and opportunities to share their work with the digital journalism community.

The fellowship is designed for up-and-coming journalists between the ages of 23 and 30 who are just beginning to make their voices heard in the industry and who are working to expand the boundaries of digital news through ongoing creative and innovative projects.
