The goal of the  Félix Varela Fellowship Program is to strengthen the diversity of the multistakeholder model by fostering opportunities for individuals from underserved and underrepresented communities to become active leaders in the media community.

Fellows are exposed to the workings of the Al Día News, Inc, are assigned a sponsor, and receive training across different areas of knowledge and skill building before, during, and after their launch into their professional career. The  Félix Varela Fellowship Program is a one-year grant funded position. This program is proudly supported by our contributors who believe in independent, local news.
