NJF is a full-year, extracurricular program run by ENAM Scholar-in-Residence Sue Halpern in conjunction with Middlebury Magazine that is open to 2nd-, 3rd-, and 4th-year students. Participants produce audio portraits of individual members of the Middlebury College student body that answer the question, “How did you get here?”
NJF functions, essentially, as a fifth course. It requires significant time-commitment. No grade is given, but students who successfully complete the program are paid an honorarium.
In this way, it also functions as a job. Students need not have previous journalism experience.
You must be in at least your 2nd year of Middlebury College.
You must be able to commit at least 10 hour a week to the project, and much more than that when you are on deadline.
You must be able to meet deadlines and be a team player.
The application is attached. It is due no later than midnight on Tuesday, September 21st and should be emailed to both Sue Halpern and Matt Jennings: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com

Knight Foundation believes that the digital space holds significant opportunities for cultural institutions, and in recent years has intensified its work to help organizations create valuable digital content. Museums that do not invest in digital capabilities and offerings will miss important connections with potential audiences. This deficiency also seems likely to erode the relevance of the arts in society as audiences spend increasing amounts of time online.
In early 2018, Knight Foundation approved $970,000 in grants that aimed to raise the digital profiles of eight museums by supporting the costs of positions dedicated to digital and technology work. These digital positions would conceive, plan, and implement digital strategies that improve the visitor experience and expand audiences. Seven of the initial eight grantees proceeded to hire their digital positions; four of the museums’ hires remain in their positions as of this writing.
The grant period presented a series of unprecedented challenges for museums and for society at large. The Covid-19 pandemic forced many museums to close their physical spaces, pivot to remote work and add more digital programming. The racial justice movement accelerated in 2020, which itself caused a reckoning with museums’ histories of Eurocentrism and lack of staff and board diversity.
All seven grantees showed growth in digital capacity during the grant period. And, though the grantees differed significantly in their budget sizes and in the scope of their digital programs, several themes surfaced repeatedly during the research.
