Independent journalism has the capacity to bring about a more democratic and equitable world. It informs, engages, provides an essential check on unfettered power, and raises up the promise of a more just future.
For more than 155 years, The Nation Magazine has been committed to the future and excellence of the independent press, and for the last forty years it has conducted activities focused on the training, development, and education of students to become the next generation of independent journalists. The Nation Fund for Independent Journalism is proud to expand these programs that aim to expand the opportunities for diverse voices and perspectives and educate early-career journalists in order to strengthen independent media.
We’re at a critical moment in our nation’s history and believe now is the moment we must do more to invest in the next generation now and train young journalists to run editorial pages, run the business of media, and help to set and raise the standards of journalism itself.
