Columbia, Mo. (March 20, 2017) — Missouri School of Journalism junior Lydia Birt is a winner of the highly selective Pulliam Journalism Fellowship for summer 2017. She will work as a copy editor for the Arizona Republic, a daily newspaper published in Phoenix.
The Pulliam Fellowship is a paid fellowship that places college students into the newsrooms of the Indianapolis Star and the Arizona Republic. Interns are members of the newsroom, receive mentorship and gain valuable journalism skills over the course of 10 weeks. The Arizona Republic is the state’s largest newspaper. It is currently owned by the Gannett Company, the nation’s largest newspaper chain.
Birt, from Hastings, Minnesota, is studying emerging media at the school. She has served as an intern and a summer reporter for the Hastings Star Gazette.
“Without the J-School, an opportunity like this would never have been possible for me,” Birt said. “I am so excited to work in Arizona.”
