WHY

The AL DIA Foundation's Félix VARELA Media Biz Leader Fellowship is a transformative opportunity for aspiring journalists, offering a unique two-year fellowship/apprenticeship program designed to cultivate excellence in media professionals. This immersive experience goes beyond conventional journalism education by providing six exceptional individuals with a comprehensive 360-degree approach to learning all the aspects of this exceptional career. 

The first year of the fellowship involves a remote curriculum, allowing fellows to engage with cutting-edge concepts and industry practices from the comfort of their own spaces. In the second year, the program transitions to a hybrid model, seamlessly blending remote and in-person experiences to further enhance skill development and foster a hands-on understanding of the dynamic field of journalism. 

This fellowship is not just a learning opportunity; it's a commitment to shaping the future of journalism by empowering talented individuals with the skills and knowledge needed for success in a rapidly evolving media landscape.

The Felix Varela Fellowship Reception is a celebration of diversity and inclusion in journalism. As we gather to honor the upcoming Felix Varela Fellowship Recipients, we are thrilled to bestow medals upon these talented individuals.
