Offer: The Pritzker Fellowships for public media training
The Pritzker Fellowships
The Pritzker Fellowships are designed to fulfill our most important goal: to discover, encourage, and train the best possible representatives of a diverse new generation of public-media talent.
Together with the Pritzker Family Foundation, Chicago Public Radio is proud to kick off the inaugural 2010 Pritzker Fellowships.
Two paid Pritzker Fellowships will be awarded each year. Professional training will be provided at the WBEZ Studios over a period of nine months, with full 40-hour work weeks required.
Pritzker Fellows will be given rigorous training in every aspect of public radio journalism and will work alongside some of the nation’s most respected reporters, producers and editors. View a full description of the program.
The Pritzker Fellowships are open to anyone with an interest in pursuing radio, web-based, or other forms of journalism. The program is open to a broad range of individuals, ages and backgrounds.
Candidates must be nominated by a community-based not-for-profit agency. The Pritzker Fellowships will be awarded to applicants representing a diverse population who are non-radio professionals, have not received formal training in journalism and who show promise as radio producers, journalists and story tellers.
