Univision Communications announced a partnership with the Stanford University Graduate Program on Journalism establishing a new fellowship program in journalism. As part of the program, graduates from Stanford University will be hired by Univision for an initial six-month period at Univision’s Miami, Los Angeles, New York, or Washington D.C. offices, and will be assigned to one of Univision News’s units: Documentary, Investigative, and New Media.
“Establishing a pipeline for young talent is critical to the future of journalism and to Univision News specifically in its leadership position of serving the needs of the fast growing Hispanic U.S. market regarding social issues, trends, political and economic developments” said Isaac Lee, president of Univision News.
For summer 2012, Univision has selected its first fellow, and for future cycles Stanford University’s department of career services will work with Univision to establish an application process.
As part of their work with the Univision News teams, the fellows will do camera-work, editing, research, and production; conduct investigations, assist in the production of original content; and curating content across platforms including blogs and social media across Univision’s new media platforms.
