Do you love investigative reporting and want to do more of it? Do you dream of working with and learning from some of the most accomplished journalists in the business? Well, we have good news for you. We’re looking for a reporting fellow to join ProPublica Illinois, our almost-1-year-old regional operation.

ProPublica fellows report their own stories — like this one — and collaborate with ProPublica’s reporters on in-depth projects. There’s even room to do the occasional story like this. Reporting fellows at ProPublica have gone on to work at The New York Times, Bloomberg, Politico, NPR and the Chicago Tribune, among other news organizations — as well as ProPublica itself.

Protect Independent Journalism

ProPublica is a nonprofit newsroom that produces nonpartisan, evidence-based journalism to expose injustice, corruption and wrongdoing. We were founded ten years ago to fill a growing hole in journalism: newsrooms were (and still are) shrinking, and legacy funding models failing. Deep-dive reporting like ours is slow and expensive, and investigative journalism is a luxury in many newsrooms today — but it remains as critical as ever to democracy and our civic life. A decade (and five Pulitzer Prizes) later, ProPublica has built the largest investigative newsroom in the country. Our work has spurred reform through legislation, at the voting booth, and inside our nation’s most important institutions.

This story you’ve just finished was funded by our readers and we hope it inspires you to make a gift to ProPublica so that we can publish more investigations like this one that holds people in power to account and produces real change.

Your donation will help us ensure that we can continue this critical work. From the Trump Administration, criminal justice, health care, immigration and so much more, we are busier than ever covering stories you won’t see anywhere else. Make your gift of any amount today and join the tens of thousands of ProPublicans across the country, standing up for the power of independent journalism to produce real, lasting change. Thank you.
