Texas Tribune Student Fellowships

The Texas Tribune — a nonprofit, nonpartisan digital news organization that reports on and for Texas and Texans — offers paid fellowships to college students. Fellows play key roles in the most important work of The Texas Tribune, covering everything from the biennial legislative sessions to elections to the impact of the coronavirus on the state.

The following positions are available for 2021: data visuals, engagement, engineering, events, marketing and communications, multimedia, photography, reporting (Austin) and reporting (Washington, D.C.)

The positions are part time in the spring and fall, and full time in the summer. They are typically based in our Austin newsroom, except for the Washington, D.C., reporting fellowship. All our teams are currently working remotely; we do not yet know whether fellowships in 2021 will be remote.

Recent graduates are eligible for the summer program, but spring and fall fellows must be enrolled undergraduate or graduate students while they work at the Tribune.

The deadline for the spring 2021 program is Oct. 2. The deadline for the summer 2021 program is Oct. 30. You may apply for more than one position.

For general questions about the fellowship program, please contact Managing Editor Corrie MacLaggan, cmaclaggan@texastribune.org. We do not accept applications by email. See below for information about each fellowship.

Here are some examples of the amazing work being done by our fellows this year on topics like coronavirus and elections.
