Apply for the 2022 MJ Bear Fellowship
We are pleased to announce the call for applications for the 2022 MJ Bear Fellowship. The year-long fellowship honors and supports journalists under 30 from around the world who are working on projects that move digital journalism forward. We invite applicants from a wide range of backgrounds, including both freelance and staff journalists. We’re especially interested in projects in the areas of audience and social engagement, business strategy and product development.
Fellows receive complimentary registration to attend ONA22 in Los Angeles, a three-year ONA membership, three online coaching sessions, networking opportunities and other avenues to showcase their work to ONA’s global community.
Established in 2011 to honor founding ONA Board member Mary Jane “MJ” Bear, the fellowship has identified and supported 30 journalists doing cutting-edge digital work. The MJ Bear Fellowship is made possible through generous contributions by the MJ Bear Estate, friends of MJ Bear and ONA, MSN International and Microsoft.
