The James Reston Reporting Fellowship is available to college seniors and graduate students who are studying journalism. You must have had at least one previous summer internship at a major news organization to be considered for this award. The first week of the fellowship involves orientation with New York City and the newsroom. Beginning with the second week, the fellows start work in a section that reflects their skills and area of interest business, sports, science or Metro, for example to report and write stories under the guidance of an editor or senior reporter serving as mentor. Some stories are assigned, but fellows are encouraged to come up with their own ideas.
