The John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships is heading to Austin!  Meet the JSK Fellows, alumni, staff and collaborators who are transforming journalism.

During the 2018 Online News Association Conference Sept. 13-15, you’ll have an opportunity to meet our directors and the members of the JSK Class of 2019 who recently started their year at Stanford University. They are 17 remarkable journalism leaders from across the U.S. and around the world. Check out what they are up to this year at Stanford, and give a shout if you have ideas that may help their projects.

We’ll also have two #AskJSK sessions on Thursday and Friday. Applications are opening soon and these sessions will provide prospective fellows with tips and tricks to make their submissions stand out.

You can also drop by our booth during the convention to see JSK alumni highlight projects they have launched to improve audience engagement, encourage journalism collaboration, and support local journalism and crowdfunding. The sessions will feature speakers from several JSK alumni teams, organizations and startups, including: GroundSource, The Coral Project, Spaceship Media, Outlier Media, Project Facet, Pactio, and our friends from the Stanford Journalism program.

We look forward to seeing you in Austin at our booth, No. 22 in the exhibition hall, which is open Thursday from noon to 5 p.m., Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Here’s our booth schedule during ONA18:
