The Washington Center Announces Funded Fellowship for Students Seeking Career Advancement in Broadcast Media
Opportunity for diverse candidates to gain first-hand experience via The United States Agency for Global Media (USAGM), the Federal government’s leading global communications network
Participants in the USAGM Fellowship have access to flexible ways of working, either in-person in Washington, D.C., remote or hybrid, and will receive financial sponsorship to cover expenses of housing and transportation. TWC will also offer Fellows a variety of professional development programs to enhance knowledge, networks and marketability.
To help ensure the future workforce of the Federal government’s leading media entity is representative of the true diversity of the U.S., all students are encouraged to apply, particularly those attending Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) such as Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSI) and Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCU).
“The USAGM Fellowship is a unique opportunity for learners to directly apply their academic pursuits into the largest global media agency across the Federal government,” said Shannan Spisak, Executive Director of Federal Initiatives at The Washington Center. “We hope that the financial sponsorship and flexibility of how and where learners can participate in this program will create more opportunity for individuals from racially, economically and geographically diverse backgrounds across the U.S.”
TWC and USAGM are committed to creating greater pathways for learners of all backgrounds and lived experience to access real-world work experience. Not only will participants gain important skills in a variety of broadcast, production and management functions, the Fellowship creates access to connections and relationships that are important to strengthening career opportunities for students.
Applications for the USAGM Fellowship are being accepted now through October 31, 2022. Participants will be selected in November and December 2022, with the program running between January 23 and May 5, 2023.
