PROGRAM OVERVIEW


Earn a $10,000 scholarship, a journalism fellowship and a road trip of a lifetime!

Chevrolet and the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA) are giving HBCU students an exciting opportunity to Discover the Unexpected (DTU) about themselves, our communities and everyday people making a real difference.

DTU Fellowship candidates are HBCU students with an interest in journalism who are up for a road trip driven by hands-on experience, exciting challenges and discovering inspirational stories from African-American communities.

Using NNPA’s professional resources and the all-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox’s innovative technology, DTU Fellows will share stories that shatter perceptions, jump-start their journalism careers and encourage us all to Discover the Unexpected.

HOW FELLOWS ARE SELECTED

A select group of NNPA publishers, editors and media spokespeople screen and evaluate NNPA Fellows applications and video submissions and select finalists.

Selection of the NNPA Fellow to Discover the Unexpected will consist of:

Completed application
Resume with GPA
Recommendation from college professor or advisor
Technology/social media skills
Writing sample

Assistance to ensure your best chance of success

As a DTU Fellow, you will be working with NNPA professionals as well as a social media-savvy Road Trip Advisor. Together, they will provide mentorship and assistance to help you make the most of your journey.

PROGRAM FEATURES AND BENEFITS

Discover the Unexpected is an 8-week journalism journey focused on sharing inspirational stories from African American communities. Each DTU Fellow receives a $10,000 scholarship, a $5,000 stipend and the use of an all-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox. Each team of DTU Fellows will travel to two cities to work with two different NNPA newspapers with the use of the all-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox and its innovative technology. DTU Fellows will be rewarded with hands-on experience, networking with journalism professionals and delivering stories that make a difference.
