The fellowship is entirely remote. Candidates with a strong commitment to improving the world, a creative approach to storytelling combined with the ability to get to the heart of a new topic quickly, and the ability to doggedly pursue your goals and persevere in the face of adversity will be considered.Under the Tarbell Fellowship program, selected fellows will receive stipends of $35,000 – $50,000 depending on location and personal circumstances, mentorship under an experienced journalist who will provide critical feedback and challenge the fellow to set goals and deliver on them, and conduct fortnightly mentorship calls, training in remote sessions in best practices, talks from experts in the field and challenging assignments designed to build skills, and an opportunity to attend a two-week summit in Oxford at the beginning of the fellowship.
