TxO NextGen 2021

This year, the Texas Observer is partnering with NextGen to produce a scholars program that will bring five college or recent college students together with mentors from the NextGen project for an intense week of (virtual) hands-on training in investigative journalism. Students who are selected should expect to produce work ready for print in the Observer. They will receive a $500 stipend. Please use the form below to apply. Deadline is midnight on Sunday, May 9.

Our program runs from June 7-June 11.

NextGen TxO is made possible thanks to support from Roxanne Elder in memory of her mother, journalist and journalism teacher Virginia Stephenson Elder, Vincent LoVoi in honor of Jim Marston and Annette LoVoi, and other generous donors. Interested in supporting this program? Click here.
