Tab Fellowship

Posted on: July 25th, 2016 by pchurdle

The Tab Fellowship is an ambitious and rigorous remote internship that teaches talented students how to write and report to a high level. Fellows work remotely on stories with our professional editors in New York, who have written for Newsweek, VICE and The Guardian. They write three stories per month, varying from breaking news to long-form interviews, and they are given extensive guidance and training on how to execute those formats and how to produce stories to a professional standard. Participants also learn about media law, journalistic ethics and other areas of knowledge that will help them in their writing. Tab Fellows communicate with our team of paid editors in New York at least weekly, during which their performance is assessed and they are given feedback on their stories and how they can improve. The Tab Fellowship is a proven training path for young writers and journalists – its best participants have broken stories that have been covered in The New York Times, BuzzFeed, the Washington Post and the Guardian, and many have taken jobs in the media upon graduation.

In addition to their training, Tab fellows are rewarded with a series of benefits, including:

  • Eligibility for Tab internships in our New York and London offices, and the opportunity to shadow senior editors in our New York headquarters
  • Official certification, recognized by our partner companies in the media
  • References on LinkedIn
  • Webinars with our senior editors

Student’s direct supervisor for the internship is Mr. Richard Patterson, Deputy Chief of Public Affairs for Cadet Command.  Mr. Patterson has over 16 years of experience as a Public Affairs Officer for the US Army and recently retired from active duty as the former Deputy Chief of Army Public Affairs.

This is not a paid internship. However, students will be reimbursed for their travel expenses to and from their home and Fort Knox.  Additionally, they will receive a meal stipend to help cover costs for food.  There is an Army Dining Facility where interns may choose to eat.  Housing will be provided on Fort Knox at no cost to the students, living in two-, three-person rooms in Army barracks near the training area.   Students will be required to coordinate their travels thru the Cadet Command Public Affairs Office to ensure they will be reimbursed.  During field operations, interns will cover events in a variety of weather conditions.

All applicants must have a driver’s license, and should be reasonably fit to withstand demanding physical requirements of covering the training.

Students will gain valuable experience, be supervised by experienced cadre, and have the  opportunity to interact with college students from across the nation who are training to become Army officers.  Likewise, this is an excellent opportunity for those who want to become a “military beat” reporter or work in the communications and marketing career field.
