Depending on the particular matching criteria of each newsroom, Student Fellows will research and write stories, contribute to open source data projects, design new digital products, and/or contribute to one of the many other innovative projects newsrooms have ongoing. The GNI Student Fellowship will be kicked-off with an online Bootcamp that will allow the Student Fellows to get to know each other, build a network, and receive career-enhancing workshops from experts in the work field.

Student Fellows are paid by their newsroom for eight weeks of full-time work. The minimum amount will be €2,500; the exact amount will be at the discretion of the newsroom.
Student Fellows will attend useful workshops and enjoy network opportunities during the kick-off boot camp. This boot camp will prepare you to make the most out of your Fellowship.
The European Journalism Centre will check in with all the Student Fellows during the Fellowship to provide them with guidance, training, and advice and touch base on progress and needs during the Fellowship.
