Come learn and grow with award-winning journalists at NPR as a 'Reflect America' Fellow.

November 28, 2023; Washington, D.C. — NPR has opened applications for its Reflect America Fellowship, a year-long position aimed at bringing a greater diversity of voices to NPR's news coverage. Applications are open until 11:59 p.m. EST on Jan. 26, 2024.

During the 12-month fellowship, the Reflect America fellow will join NPR's Climate Desk and report on vulnerable communities, particularly Indigenous communities. The fellow will build skills in essential aspects of climate reporting; learn to understand and analyze climate science; and work on accountability and investigative stories. Along the way, they'll also learn to assess potential solutions to climate threats, including those that vulnerable communities are exploring.

"Our Reflect America Fellows have made their mark on NPR and public radio through the years," said Chief Diversity Officer Keith Woods. "We're excited about the latest iteration of the fellowship and the opportunity it offers both to young journalists and to our organization to delve into a critical issue in the country and the world."

This fellowship is part of nearly a decade of work to strengthen the diversity of NPR's content. The fellowship's focus shifts in 2024 to concentrate on one of the world's most important beats.

The Reflect America Fellowship is a paid, full-time position that runs from September 2024 to the end of August 2025. For more information, go to the Reflect America FAQ page.
