Texas Tribune Student Fellowships

The Texas Tribune has ongoing fellowships/internships for students that include a variety of positions.

Fellowships include:

  • Paid Data Visuals Fellowships
  • Paid Reporting Fellowships
  • Photo Editing Fellowships

Data Visuals Fellowship Description

As part of the editorial staff, the Data Visuals team does a little bit of everything — from analyzing data and reporting to designing, building and managing special features like Starstruck and large-scale data apps like the Texas Public Schools Explorer. We’re looking for creative journalists with a penchant for coding to help us build interactive features across the site.

You’ll work directly with our interactive news designers and developers, reporters and editors in the newsroom. Fellows are first-class citizens on our team – in the past, they’ve had the opportunity to not only contribute to high-profile projects but to take the lead on them. For more info, here’s some insight from previous fellows on what they learned.

Ideal candidates know a little bit about HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and/or Python/Django and would like to continue to hone their skills. They are passionate about web standards, willing to discuss and show their code and deeply interested in politics, policy and open government.

While the deadlines for this coming summer term have passes for most of those positions, check out their fellowship website frequently for new opportunities.
