Report for America is a nonprofit program that sends early-career journalists—and next year, a small group of mid- to late-career journalists—to newsrooms throughout the country to report on under-covered topics and communities. Local reporting can be thrilling, rewarding—and challenging. Check out our interactive database of newsrooms and beats, and read the FAQs to make sure you’re a good fit for this program. Should you become a finalist and slated for one or more newsroom interviews, your application will be shared with those newsrooms.
RFA is a two-year program with a one-year check-in. (If your newsroom likes you and vice versa, both of you re-up for a second year. Most corps members do.) We’ve also added an optional third year. In 2021, we’ll be placing roughly 300 corps members across the county; around 100 of those will be new placements. (The rest will be current corps members who sign up for another year.) We’re committed to equality and diversity in the workplace.
