NPR fellowships offer early to mid-career professionals an opportunity to share their talents and hone their skills while working at NPR and our member stations. NPR offers three fellowships. For details, eligibility requirements, and application procedures, please see the links below.

Kroc Fellowships
The Kroc Fellowship identifies and trains the next generation of public radio journalists, selecting three to participate in an intensive, year-long program at NPR and Member stations. The Kroc Fellowship is made possible through a 2003 bequest from Joan B. Kroc, philanthropist and widow of McDonald's Corporation founder Ray A. Kroc.

The Stone and Holt Weeks Fellowship
The Fellowship was created in memory of Stone and Holt Weeks by NPR and The Washington Post following their tragic deaths in 2009. Designed to give a promising individual the opportunity to launch a career in journalism, the fellowship consists of two sessions: 12 weeks at The Washington Post followed by 12 weeks at NPR in Washington, DC, to learn how to report for print, web, and radio.

Above the Fray Fellowship
NPR and the John Alexander Project have collaborated to launch the Above the Fray Fellowship, a joint international reporting fellowship designed to give a promising journalist the opportunity to cover important but under-reported stories from a location abroad.
