The Nation is accepting applications for two Student Writing Fellows. This year-long program will give two college students the opportunity to regularly write for and to work with Nation staff members to sharpen the skills needed for a successful career in journalism.

Fellows should be familiar with The Nation and have a passion for politics. They will contribute 2-3 articles per month, and will be expected to both pitch ideas and write on assignment. Fellows will write on a range of subjects covered by The Nation, with an emphasis on how young people are navigating and combating new and unprecedented obstacles in the age of Donald Trump. Coverage of social movements and protest is always essential–especially now–and the perspective and analysis of the next generation of independent thinkers is more critical than ever.

Application deadline: Noon EST on Monday, April 3.
Applicants will be informed of their status by April 21. 
The fellowship will run from May 15, 2017 to April 30, 2018.

This fellowship has been made possible by the generosity of the Puffin Foundation.
