California Local News Fellowship Program

UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism

The California Local News Fellowship program is a multi-year, state-funded initiative to support and strengthen local news reporting in California, with a focus on underserved communities. Each year, the program places up to 40 early-career journalism fellows in newsrooms throughout the state for two-year, full-time reporting positions. This program directly addresses the crisis in local news across the nation. The California Local News Fellowship program stands as an ambitious initiative, delivering direct reporting resources to local news outlets in communities throughout the state. Participating newsrooms are representative of the state’s diverse journalism ecosystem and include mainstream newspapers and digital sites, ethnic media, non-profits, youth media, and public media outlets, among others.
