POLITICO is now accepting applications for the 2023 session of the POLITICO Journalism Institute (PJI), an intensive training program designed to advance newsroom diversity.
POLITICO’s mission from the very beginning was to win the audience. We dedicate ourselves to providing accurate, nonpartisan, impactful journalism so that our readers are well informed and can work with confidence and speed. We also commit to training the next generation of journalists, as we promote diversity throughout D.C. area newsrooms. The POLITICO Journalism Institute (PJI) is one of the ways we do that.
The 10-day program for undergraduate and graduate students offers hands-on training for students interested in sharpening their skills at the largest politics- and policy-focused newsroom in the nation. The next full in-person session, scheduled for May 30 to June 9, 2023, offers a unique opportunity for emerging journalists to have their work published by POLITICO.
Applicants who are rising juniors or seniors at accredited four-year colleges or universities will be given preference. Student members of minority journalism associations are encouraged to apply.
American University and the Maynard Institute will once again partner with PJI, as they have since its inception.
Programming for PJI includes interactive workshops, sessions with industry leaders and mentor pairings. It also takes participants behind the scenes in the historic places where national stories are covered, including the White House, Congress, and the National Press Club. Participants split time between the POLITICO newsroom in Arlington, Va., and the nearby campus of American University, where they also are provided housing. All costs including housing, meals and transportation are covered by POLITICO.
Applicants who are rising juniors or seniors at accredited four-year colleges or universities are given preference. Members of affinity journalism associations are encouraged to apply. All applications must be completed and submitted by 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 5, 2022. Click here to apply.
