POLITICO Fellowship (EDI0019)

Care about the facts? So do we. Since 2007, POLITICO has been committed to non-partisan journalism. We create products and deliver content of consequence; they have the power to change the course of history by making democracy better through our coverage of politics, policy, and power. As long as those intersect, there will be a need for POLITICO and our stories. That's where you come in.

POLITICO is offering a one-year fellowship to a promising reporter who is committed to developing expertise in political and congressional news coverage.

The fellowship begins in December and lasts one year. The fellowship pays a stipend of at least $30,000 (commensurate with experience) plus benefits, including two weeks' paid vacation. Fellows will receive intensive mentoring and close editing as they report on subjects such as Congress, the administration, national politics, lobbying and finance.

Fellows must remain for the duration of the program. Becoming a fellow does not guarantee later employment at POLITICO.

Qualifications

POLITICO will select from a diverse pool of applicants interested in working as Washington-based journalists covering Congress, lobbying, politics or one of several domestic policy areas. Candidates must have completed college or graduate school before the fellowship begins. They may have worked for up to two years at a professional news organization.

The 2017 application deadline is Oct. 30. Late and incomplete applications will not be considered.

Come help us build the story. We check our comfort zones at the door each day to foster innovation, and because we believe in each other's ambitions, we come together to create something meaningful.

We value our people. We offer a competitive compensation and comprehensive benefits package, including health and wellness benefits, commuter benefits, retirement plans, as well as work-life balance flexibility and opportunities for career development.

Let's keep in touch. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter at @politicocareers and #meetPOLITICO for a deep dive into what makes us POLITICOs and our adventures. We'd love to hear from you!
