Focus Areas Include:
- Writing, editing and reporting

Work in Washington, D.C. or in the States - Through MJF, participants will be selected by a partner organization – in the Washington, D.C. area or across the country – and attend weekly online classes with CKI. The courses taken at CKI will focus on fundamental journalism skills and the productive role of a free press in society, in particular, what it means to hold other key institutions accountable. Additionally, participants will attend three networking summits in Washington, D.C. throughout the year, enabling fellows to build a cross-country network of peers in the media industry.
