Each year in winter and early spring, KNOM begins a new search for outstanding volunteer fellows to commit to a year of service at KNOM.

Most applicants are recent, or soon-to-be, college graduates. We welcome a variety of degrees, and prior broadcasting experience is welcome, but not necessary.

Know someone who might be a good fit? Applications are being accepted now, right here at knom.org. The priority deadline is February 15.
