VICE Media and the Center for Communication are launching a fellowship program, open to students across the country, that will place two journalism students from underrepresented communities at VICE. Participants in the program will intern at the VICE offices in Brooklyn for eight weeks during the summer and will also have opportunities to engage with other media organizations, arranged by the Center for Communication. While at VICE, fellows will receive individual instruction and guidance from award‐ winning journalists, producers, and editors. Fellows will also have access to VICE’s state of the art edit suites, production studios and will be encouraged to create and present their own work for review at the end of the program. The Center will also organize three On Location events for the fellows to serve as an introduction to the NYC media landscape.
