Wogrammer Journalism Fellowship Application

We believe the best way to break stereotypes is through positive storytelling. As a wogrammer Journalism Fellow you will be a part of inspiring the next generation of women and girls to pursue engineering by showcasing female engineers across a variety of industries. The Wogrammer Journalism Fellowship is an opportunity to help change how capable, competent women are discussed in the media, one story at a time.

You will become a part of wogrammer’s mission to break stereotypes and inspire women and girls to pursue careers in engineering by showcasing real women, telling their stories, and celebrating their accomplishments.

Special thanks to Craig Newmark Philanthropies for supporting this fellowship. Their commitment to advancing women in technology and trustworthy journalism resonates deeply with the wogrammer mission and community.
