Objective
Atlantic Media Company believes in the value of a diverse work environment. As part of our continuing effort to support diversity, we are offering year-long editorial fellowships to two emerging journalists. The goal of the fellowships is to increase the representation of historically underrepresented groups at the company and to provide an opportunity for graduate students and recent graduates to develop editorial skills through a series of rotations across our publications.

Company Background
Atlantic Media Company is a family of media properties, based in Washington D.C., whose purpose is to inform and elevate the national discourse. The publications and online products of Atlantic Media, as well as the voices behind them, are known as a trusted source of nonpartisan insight and information on the most important issues of the day—both inside the Washington policy-making community and beyond. With a combined reach of over 1.5 million readers, our flagship publications—The Atlantic, National Journal, and Government Executive—are among the most influential media outlets in America, challenging and engaging national opinion leaders within the ranks of business, politics, government, media, and academia.

Beyond the high-caliber delivery of its editorial products, Atlantic Media Company also provides a rare “service first,” mission-driven environment. Propelled by the proven vision of founder David G. Bradley, the organization operates under the clear direction of its core values: ideas are indispensable, generosity is paramount, and merit earns reward.

Fellowship Opportunity
The Atlantic Media Company Diversity Fellowship Program offers the opportunity for two outstanding individuals to join our editorial staff for one year. Fellows will complete three 4-month rotations with assignments designed to give hands-on experience in research, editing, and reporting. Working closely with our writers and editors in our Watergate offices, fellows will be exposed to all facets of journalism and political reporting. Fellows will also have the opportunity to spend a rotation on the business side of journalism, providing support to the circulation and reader support or advertising and marketing teams. Fellows will be compensated at the annual rate of $30,000 and be eligible for coverage under the Company’s group medical insurance program. Fellows will be responsible for finding their own housing.

The ideal candidate will have experience in journalism, proven writing skills, a career interest in media and journalism, intellectual curiosity, initiative, creative problem solving skills, and a record of academic achievement.
