Chevrolet is proud to be more than just a car company. They don’t just care about their customers and do everything they can to make their experience great-they care about everyone, and do their best to show it whenever they can. One of the ways Chevy does so is through their annual Discover the Unexpected Journalism Fellowship, where they partner with the National Newspaper Publishers Association to offer fellowship programs, scholarships, and more to students from historically black colleges and universities.

Earlier this month, the two organizations came together to choose six students for the 2019 Discover the Unexpected Journalism Fellowship. Those six students will travel the country to visit African American communities and learn and write about them, with help from NNPA staffers. This prestigious summer internship lasts for eight weeks, beginning in early June. Chevrolet also gives each fellow in the program a $10,000 scholarship and $5,000 stipend, and each of the program’s two-person teams is provided with a 2019 Chevrolet Blazer to help them reach their destinations.

“Our partnership with the NNPA continues to provide a unique platform to connect with young and remarkable storytellers.” said US VP of Chevrolet Marketing Paul Edwards. “From the inaugural launch at Howard University to the inclusion of all the HBCUs, it’s Chevrolet’s pleasure to partner with members of the African American community, ensuring a legacy is established for generations to come. We’re thrilled to meet this year’s group of fellows and immerse them in all things Chevrolet.”
