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
