Applications are open for the Poynter & Google News Initiative Misinformation Student Fellowship Program 2023. In 2023, given the ever-present problem of misinformation and how quickly it can spread — especially on social media – the Google News Initiative and Poynter have partnered to launch a student fellowship program focused on combating mis- and disinformation in communities.
Fellows will work in local newsrooms on projects aimed at curbing the spread of misinformation and promoting digital literacy at the community level and among the younger generation. In working to support local newsrooms, fellows may cover regional misinformation trends, create video content, conduct research to help with stories or projects, or other tasks to help build misinformation resilience in their communities.
The application window closes July 21, 2023 at midnight Pacific Time. The program will run from roughly September to December, or the fall semester.
