Online News Association

The competitive Online News Association (ONA) Challenge Fund for Innovation in Journalism Education will support “live news experiments” within journalism education by allowing students to create innovative projects with professionals, professors and researchers.

Why We Invested

We see the Challenge Fund for Journalism Education as an opportunity to hack the news ecosystem, to encourage more collaborative local news coverage, bridge the professor-professional gap, and better educate students who enter the journalism job market each year.

Democracy Fund is proud to support ONA as they continue to expand their programming and engagement in areas like local journalism, developing women’s leadership in the industry, and spurring innovation in journalism education through the Challenge Fund.
