Join the Corps

We are looking for talented journalists who are committed to public service and to reporting on under-covered issues, providing their communities with information they need to hold the powerful accountable.

How It Works

Throughout the year of service, corps members complete on-the-ground reporting on their beat. At the start and throughout, they receive world-class training from veteran journalists, nonprofit and service leaders, technologists and academics, plus access to an international network of reporters who believe in the power of transformative journalism.

Meet our 2021-2022 Corps Members

Applications for a second corps open later this fall.
