This summer, five Missouri School of Journalism students are taking part in the Knight Nonprofit News internship program, a diverse scholarship partnership between MU and the Institute for Nonprofit News. The program strives to develop a more diverse workforce — particularly in the area of leadership and management.

This year’s students and newsroom partners are Amari Foster, The Texas Tribune (Austin); Rachel Henderson, Wisconsin Watch (Madison); Cela Migan, Inside Climate News (Brooklyn); Prathithi Parasuram, CalMatters (Sacramento); and Moy Zhong, The Beacon (Kansas City).

The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation advances journalism in the digital age and invests in the vitality of communities where the Knight brothers owned newspapers. Since 1950, the foundation has granted more than $400 million to advance quality journalism and freedom of expression.
