Religion News Service (RNS) and Interfaith America (IA) invite applications for the 2023-2024 RNS/IA Religion Journalism Fellowship.

The fellowship, returning for its third year, will span from September 2023 to May 2024. This fellowship serves to develop future religion news journalists by deepening their understanding of religious expression in individual lives and diverse communities. It also aims to develop skills specific to covering religion, belief, faith, and spirituality.

Applications are open to all journalism graduates who have completed their degree in the past three years, and to freelance reporters who may not have a journalism degree but have at least a year of relevant reporting experience.

The fellowship includes a $4000 stipend, workshops and sessions with renowned religion reporters from across the nation, one-on-one mentorship with RNS and Interfaith America Magazine editorial teams, opportunities to attend editorial meetings and network with reporters and editors in the field, and a fully paid trip to the 2024 Religion News Association Conference in Chicago.

Application deadline is August 4, 2023.
