The Knight-Mozilla Fellowships
Knight-Mozilla-FellowshipsDevelopers, technologists, engineers or programmers interested in journalism can apply for this fellowship. The Knight-Mozilla OpenNews Fellowship offers developers and technologists in newsrooms worldwide US$60,000 to spend 10 months writing code in collaboration with reporters, designers and newsroom developers.
The following newsrooms will be hosting this year’s fellows: The Guardian in London; La Nacion in Argentina; NPR in Washington; Vox Media in Austin,Texas, Washington or New York; the Center for Investigative Reporting in Emeryville, California; The New York Times in New York; and The Washington Post in Washington or New York.
Along with the stipend paid over 10 months, the fellowship provides supplements for housing, childcare, health insurance, moving expenses and helps pay for research/equipment and books. The fellowship also covers the costs of required travel for fellowship activities.
Apply by August 16, 2014.

The 2015 Fellowships

Seven news organizations around the world will be hosting our six Knight-Mozilla Fellows in 2015: the Guardian, La Nacion, NPR, Vox Media, the Center for Investigative Reporting, the New York Times, and the Washington Post.

The Fellowship Experience

Knight-Mozilla Fellows work in some of the best newsrooms in the world: they’re present as news breaks, write code for the day’s headlines, wrangle thorny datasets, and get to take a step back to build better newsroom tools and practices. As a Fellow, you would live and work for 10 months in the city where your host newsroom is located (travel and housing is paid as part of the Fellowship) and work as a member of the newsroom team.

The kinds of projects Fellows work on day-to-day are dictated by the news organization and the Fellow, and include projects focused on data, mapping, research, and impact analysis. If you already have ideas of things that interest you, whether it be news games or civic data crunching, that’s great. We’re looking for people who want to experiment with technology in journalism, and Fellows get plentiful room to figure out what those experiments should be.

Why Newsrooms?

Our Fellows’ work is rooted in developing open projects that help us all better understand our world via journalism. But embedding Fellows in newsrooms does more than contributing to journalism.

News is at the center of many people’s web use, and the technology decisions news organizations are currently making will shape the way we experience the entire web for years to come. As advocates of the open web, we are especially invested in making open technology options a realistic and attractive option for newsrooms, technically and culturally.

Working in the Open

Knight-Mozilla Fellows share their work beyond their host newsrooms. By blogging their experiences, pushing code to open repositories, and taking part in other OpenNews initiatives, our Fellows help strengthen the entire journalism-developer community and contribute to a more transparent, secure, and accessible internet.

Who Should Apply

The Knight-Mozilla Fellowship program is designed to engage people who like to code and bring them—and their varied expertise—into newsroom. If you have a knack for coding and an interest in contributing your skills to journalistic projects, you are the type of person we are looking for.

There is no “typical” Fellow, and previous Fellows have come from a variety of backgrounds including academia, software engineering, open source coding, and newsroom development. Most of our Fellows did not major in Computer Science, and many had never visited a newsroom before their Fellowship. We are an inclusive program and seek Fellows who reflect the diversity of the communities we serve. Women and other under-represented participants in technology are strongly encouraged to apply.
