Inland Fellows

Deadline for nominations to the Inland Fellows program is drawing closer


The deadline to nominate a candidate to the Inland Fellows program for the next class is fast approaching.

Nominations for the next Fellows class are due July 13.

Inland Fellows Program applications are available here.

Inland Fellows Program is a two-year program to help those early-stage employees who are considered management material, build a foundation for a successful career at their organization—and to help newspaper workplaces better reflect the makeup of the audiences they serve.

Fellows can come from any department in an Inland member newspaper.

Inland Fellows are paired with mentors who accompany them to the Inland Annual Meeting and the Key Executives Mega-Conference. In addition, each Fellow will attend a third Inland conference during the year.

Fellows are exposed to the operations of all newspaper departments, and consult regularly with their mentors.

Preference will be given to candidates who are racial and ethnic minorities, women or members of the LGBT community. But all Inland member newspaper employees with management potential are eligible to apply.

Inland will pick up 100% of cost of the program for candidates from member newspapers of less than 10,000 daily circulation. Inland will split the costs with sponsoring newspapers for candidates from papers greater than 10,000-circulation daily.
