Every fall, the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute invites proposals from people and institutions to collaborate with RJI on innovative ideas and projects to improve the practice or understanding of journalism.
From exploring journalistic opportunities for wearable technology to helping smaller community newspapers provide digital services for advertisers, the ninth fellowship class of the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute continues RJI’s commitment to nurturing and strengthening journalism’s service to citizens and their communities.
This year’s residential, nonresidential and institutional fellowships were chosen from among 225 applicants from around the world. The fellowship class also includes three faculty members from the University of Missouri.
Missouri Press Service has been selected as one of two institutional fellows. Staff of the Missouri Press Service will create and test revenue-generating digital services that smaller newspapers could provide to local merchants. The project leader is Mark Nienhueser, MPS advertising director.
A full list of fellows is listed on the Reynolds Journalism Institute website.
