NPR named three Joan B. Kroc Fellows, chosen from about 320 applicants.
The program “identifies and trains the next generation of public radio journalists.” Fellows participate in a year-long program at NPR and member stations.
They are Carolyn Beeler of Delaware, Ohio, who majored in journalism and history at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism; Habiba Nosheen of Toronto, Canada, who earned a masters in journalism at Columbia and holds a B.A. from the University of Toronto and an M.A. in women’s studies from York University in Toronto; and Sam Sanders of Schertz, Texas, who has a masters in public policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.
The fellowship is funded from Joan Kroc’s 2003 bequest to NPR.
