Kiplinger Program in Public Affairs Journalism

Kiplinger Program in Public Affairs Journalism offers short-term fellowships to help make better use of new online tools and channels. Fellows spend an intensive week (April 26 - May 1, 2015) at The Ohio State University in Columbus. They’ll be immersed in training designed to pay off immediately in the newsroom. Fellows will explore creative reporting uses of Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and other social media sites.
