Social media fellowship offers week-long course for journalists

A great opportunity for journalists in the US (we’re told in the comments below it’s open to international journalists too): the Kiplinger Program in Public Affairs Journalism, part of the Ohio State University, is looking for journalists for its social media fellowship.

The fellowship consists of a week-long course in March 2011 for journalists who want training in using social media for news gathering and publishing, including tuition on SEO, the semantic web, social networks and building an online presence.

The foundation will cover the costs of the course and travel and board.

The deadline for applications is 30 November.
