Raven Radio’s post-graduate fellowship is a 30-week program intended to bridge the period between the completion of a journalism student’s education and the beginning of his or her career.

The Fellowship offers a recent graduate the opportunity to…
— Gain substantial expertise in a professional newsroom.
— Refine live broadcast and production skills.
— Experiment with and develop multi-media production skills.
— Explore complex news issues in a diverse community, region, and state.
— Write, edit, and produce sound-rich, in-depth stories for local, state, and national distribution.
— Establish professional connections to NPR, the Alaska Public Radio Network, National Native News, and other affiliates.

The Raven Radio Post-Graduate Fellowship in Community Journalism was created to honor the memory of Steve Will. Steve worked in different capacities at Raven Radio over a period of about twenty-five years. Like many who have made careers in public broadcasting, he began as a volunteer and, the story goes, he wasn’t all that good at first. Steve finally did find his groove in the news department, eventually becoming its director. His years in that job were marked by a major labor dispute at the town’s largest employer, the Alaska Pulp Corporation mill, and then the eventual shutdown of the mill itself. Despite the deep divisions in the community Steve’s reporting is still remembered as honest, even, and compelling. He went on to win one of the most prestigious national awards in broadcasting – the Ohio State – for a series he produced during that period on the sexual abuse of minors. Steve later was detailed voluntarily to serve as a regional reporter, in an experiment that shaped the present-day CoastAlaska Network. He left broadcasting for a while to write for the Daily Sitka Sentinel, but returned in 2006 as Raven Radio’s program director. Steve’s death in a bike accident in 2007 in no way canonized him. His reputation as committed journalist and passionate advocate for community broadcasting was well-established, well-deserved, and well-earned.

Through a partnership with the US Department of Education’s Office of Indian Education, Claremont Graduate University will award selected Native Americans with a generous support package to help them earn a California preliminary K-12 teaching credential and master’s in education in as little as 15 months.

The fellowship provides selected Native American students with full tuition support and a stipend for living expenses, in addition to a year of mentoring once they complete the program, so that they emerge as teachers prepared with the skills needed to promote educational excellence in their communities.

  • A 100% tuition fellowship to complete Claremont Graduate University’s preliminary teaching credential and master’s in education program. (Fellows will be responsible for nominal student fees and costs associated with state-mandated tests for K-12 teachers.)
  • Fifteen months of living expenses ($1,400/month).
  • One year of post-program job mentorship. (Fellows need not be in California for this phase of the program.)

In exchange for the 15 months of tuition and living support, CNA Fellows must be employed for at least 15 months in a school serving Native American students. This school does not need to be located in California. If the CNA Fellow fails to meet this service commitment, the total amount of funds given becomes a loan that must be repaid. Therefore, it is imperative that CNA Fellows are committed to the teaching profession.


Six Native Americans will be selected as CNA Fellows for Cohort 1; an additional six CNA Fellows will be selected for Cohort 2.
