All News21 stories and multimedia content are available free of charge. All we ask for are bylines and links.
National News21 released a project in August 2012 that examined the impact of recent extensive changes in election laws and voting procedures in many states.
News21 now welcomes students from all journalism schools. Applications are due Nov. 1.
Student work has appeared in numerous national publications.
News21 stories and projects have been honored in multiple journalism awards contests.
Foundations support News21 fellows: The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation of New York have provided millions of dollars in funding for News21 since the program's inception in 2005. For a history of News21, go to http://cronkite.asu.edu/experience/news21.
Other support comes from the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation and the Hearst Foundations. The Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation provides funding for six students each year from the Cronkite School and the University of Oklahoma's Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication to participate in News21. The Hearst Foundations' gift provides support for an additional three students to participate. For more information, visit http://cronkite.asu.edu/node/2615.
Part of the goal of the News21 program is to distribute student content as widely as possible in the belief that the work is valuable to media organizations and audiences across the country.
To that end, all content is offered free of charge under Creative Commons licensing.
Media outlets that have published News21 projects in recent years include The Washington Post, msnbc.com and National Public Radio, among many others. The content also has been widely distributed through blogs and individual and group websites.
News21 content can be used as is or in edited versions as long as the material is credited to Carnegie-Knight News21.com. For more information, see Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 United States License.
We also ask that publishers retain student bylines and credit lines and link to the News21.com website.
In addition, users may download a widget for their websites that links directly to the most recent News21 project. We have a static widget and a rotating one available for quick use. The widget code can be accessed here.
