Domestic Extremism Reporting Fellow

Inkstick Media is seeking a reporting fellow to focus on accountability reporting in the US on domestic extremism, domestic terrorism, and election security in the year leading up to the 2024 elections

Inkstick is focused on global security from and for a human perspective. We seek a bright, dynamic, committed journalist who will take this level of nuance in reporting on international security and turn it inward to America’s growing domestic security threats.

The fellow will explore how domestic extremism is impacting institutions and our government, how our institutions are (and aren’t) responding, and how these issues play out in the lead-up to the elections. As always with Inkstick, the stories will feature a distinctly human-centered approach, paired with rigorous reporting and analysis.

The reporting fellow must be based in the US. The fellowship will run from December 2023-January 2025. The reporting fellow will receive a monthly stipend of $1000 and be expected to file bi-monthly deep dives over the course of the fellowship.

Inkstick Media is committed to fostering diversity. We welcome applications from people of all cultures, backgrounds, and experiences, and we highly encourage applications from people of color, persons with disabilities, bilingual and bicultural individuals, and members of the LGBT+ community.
