The PNA Foundation – in partnership with the National Newspaper Association Foundation – is seeking a news fellow for the fifth annual News Fellows Program. The program will be held March 15-17, 2017, in Washington, D.C. College journalists visit the nation's capital to cover an issue of national importance and its impact on local communities.
