"The newsroom treated me like one of their own, pushing me to learn what stood at the core of various Southern identities and to learn the tricks of radio reporting, all in my first month at WFAE." - Ana Lucia Murillo, 2016 Roger Sarow Fellow
WFAE’s mission is to create journalism that informs, enriches, and inspires. To help deliver that kind of journalism we believe public media newsrooms must do their best to reflect the diverse communities they serve. WFAE seeks a college student or recent college graduate of diverse ethnicity who wants to explore a career in public media journalism. Fellows report daily short stories for the radio, as well as longer feature pieces. Past fellows have reported on a shift of the boundary between North and South Carolina that left dozens of families in different states, efforts to stem a truck driver shortage, and a push to support black-owned businesses. This is a 10-week fellowship during the summer of 2018 that pays $4,000. We are seeking applicants who have developed a journalism foundation at the college level.
