Paul Miller Fellowship
the Paul Miller fellowship
For more than 25 years, the Paul Miller Washington Reporting Fellowship has introduced promising young reporters to the city they have been assigned to cover. From September to June, this one-day-a-month fellowship will give print, online and broadcast journalists from top news organizations an intensive – and lively – overview of reporting in the capital.
Over the course of nine months, fellows will visit the Pentagon, the Supreme Court, the Capitol and other key Washington institutions. They’ll discuss politics with policymakers, top experts and the best reporters in the business. And they’ll network with colleagues who will help them grow personally and professionally.
The Washington media landscape is filled with former Paul Miller fellows. You can join their ranks.
