Emerging journalists are invited to participate in a program that seeks to strengthen local media.
Report For America (RFA), a project funded by journalists Charles Sennott and Steven Waldman with support from The GroundTruth Project, Google News Lab and others, places journalists in local newsrooms in under-covered corners of America.
RFA is looking for reporting corps members to spend one year in a local newsroom, with the opportunity to renew.
The selected journalists will attend an intensive advanced training on Google tools taught by Google News Lab, covering municipal finance and solutions journalism.
The deadline is Feb. 1, 2019.
