ProPublica will offer the Data Institute, a 11-day intensive summer workshop on how to use data, design and code for journalism. The workshop will be from June 7 to June 21 in our NYC offices. The deadline to apply is March 31.
The Data Institute is completely free to attend. ProPublica will provide lodging and cover roundtrip travel costs to New York City. Once here, students will receive prepaid metrocards to cover travel costs to and from our offices. We’ll also provide breakfast and lunch every day of the Institute. Additionally, ProPublica is offering a limited number of need-based stipends to help those who may otherwise not be able to attend. Requests for stipends are part of the application.
If you’re a journalism student or journalist currently residing in the United States, and passionate about learning how to use data, design and code to help tell stories, this workshop is for you. You don’t need to have any previous experience, but we want to see that you’ve demonstrated curiosity about telling stories with data. Have you tinkered with data, design or code? You’ll be able to tell us in the application.
