10/ “The institute made me familiar with Excel and spreadsheets, and being a part of the LRN gave me an opportunity to practice daily. ProPublica is a model of what being intentional about diversity and inclusion look like.” — @wendi_c_thomas, Data Institute 2016
 
11/ “I think it’s safe to say that without your scholarship, I might not be on a 21-hour drive to Bismarck right now for my first job!” — @andytsubasaf, Diversity Scholarship 2018
 
12/ “I was selected from hundreds of applicants to participate in the competitive The New York Times Student Journalism Institute this May. This opportunity was made possible directly because of the ProPublica scholarship.” — @lyndamgonzalez, Diversity Scholarship 2018
 
13/ “I feel like being a scholarship winner has opened all the doors in my journalism path. Without it, I honestly don't think that all I've done would have been possible.” — @drewkjones, Diversity Scholarship 2018
 
14/ “I used the scholarship to attend AAJA in 2017, which is actually where I first met executives from The Philadelphia Inquirer... Those connections led them to recruit me for the Lenfest fellowship program a year later.” — @aneripattani, Diversity Scholarship 2017
 
15/ The Data Institute is a two-week, intensive workshop that teaches data, design and coding. We partner with the @ibwellssociety to bring 12 journalists to NYC each summer. https://propub.li/2KNWuHG
 
@IBWellsSociety 16/ The Diversity Scholarship program gives out 20 scholarships a year to students who want to attend a conference like @NAHJ, @NABJ, @AAJA, @IRE or @ONA but can’t afford to. We’ve sent over 50 students to conferences over the past few years. https://propub.li/31QfESM
 
@IBWellsSociety @NAHJ @NABJ @aaja @ire @ONA 17/ These programs have wrapped up for 2019, but if you’re interested in next year's Data Institute or Diversity Scholarship program, sign up here to be notified: https://propub.li/30kcMxg

2/ “I would not have even known where to begin on a project like this were it not for the Data Institute training.” — @KayAnneSkinner, Data Institute 2018
 
3/ “The institute has helped me enormously, and I apply most of what I learned in my day-to-day work. I think the biggest takeaway for me was not being afraid to dig into code even if I’m not ‘fluent’ in it.” — @LauraC_Moscoso, Data Institute 2018
