Fellowships

NAM provides ethnic media with opportunities for expanding editorial capacity and expertise through professional training and fellowships. We have partnered with institutions such as American Society of Newspaper Editors and the University of California Office of the President in order to broaden the reach of ethnic media who often don’t have the access to resources that mainstream journalists do. Fellowships provide training in areas such as reporting, attracting advertising, and the digital medium.
