Apply for an expense-paid fellowship for digital journalists sponsored by the Knight Digital Media Center at USC. See note below from the center’s director:
I`m coming to you looking for help in finding the right places to find the right people for something new we`re trying this year — a boot camp for digital journalists who have great ideas and don`t know what to do with them. We`re offering expenses-paid fellowships to attend a one-week seminar being held May 16-21 in Los Angeles.
It`s our attempt to bring entrepreneurial skills and business basics to folks who want to pursue their own idea of what journalism in the digital age can be but who have no idea what they need to do to get there.
Here`s the formal announcement and online application form: http://www.knightdigitalmediacenter.org/seminars/archives/news_entrepreneur_boot_camp/
Deadline is rapidly approaching (FEBRUARY 16, 2009) and we need to get the word to potential candidates who may be off our radar now. Please feel free to forward this information to your colleagues.
Thanks so much for your help.
