What is Wogrammer

Wogrammer is a story-based organization that challenges society’s perceptions of women engineers from diverse backgrounds. The Wogrammer Journalism Fellowship is an opportunity to change how women engineers are portrayed in the media, one story at a time.

What we need

We’re looking for writers who are passionate about dispelling stereotypes and can commit to producing 10 inspiring stories. Each story profiles a female engineer’s accomplishments, aspirations and journey.

What the fellowship entails

This is an excellent opportunity for a journalism major to gain experience in writing, editing and sourcing briefs on women engineers to highlight their achievements. This is also an excellent opportunity to gain exposure, as wogrammer stories reach over 2 million readers.
