Osage Foundation to fund up to three college students to attend NAJA student workshop

The Osage Nation Foundation has agreed to provide funding for up to three lucky Osage college students to attend the Native American Journalists Association Student Projects at the 2016 Excellence in Journalism conference in New Orleans Sept. 17-21.

Deadline to apply is May 1.

The Society of Professional Journalists and the Native American Journalists Association are seeking 14 interns for the EIJ News. Interns will cover the EIJ conference using a variety of digital approaches (video, social, audio, photos, written stories) that will be published online. Collegiate multimedia journalists are invited to apply for these select positions.

This year’s conference is set for September 18-20 in New Orleans. Selected interns will need to arrive in New Orleans on Saturday, Sept. 17 and attend a mandatory 3 p.m. staff meeting. The internship ends Wednesday, Sept. 21 at Noon.

The NAJA Student Project is an intense five-day journalism boot camp that culminates with a yearlong post-conference mentorship for all fellows and 3 college credit hours, thanks to a partnership with the University of Montana.

Any Osage college students who complete the NAJA Student Projects will be invited to freelance for the Osage News.
