THE NEW YORK TIMES OFFERS MINORITY JOURNALISM FELLOWSHIPS

 NEW YORK, April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The New York Times announced today that it is offering 15 management training fellowships in cooperation with the Institute for Journalism Education (IJE), a non- profit organization dedicated to fostering racial diversity in the newspaper industry.
 Adapted from its acclaimed Management Training Center at Northwestern University, the IJE training will take place at the National Association of Hispanic Journalists Convention in Washington, D.C., from Sunday, June 20 through Thursday, June 24. This is a first- of-its kind effort by IJE to host a management training program at a journalism convention.
 IJE and newspaper executives from both the news and business sides of newspapers will make presentations at the five-day training session which will include:
 -- Decision making techniques, diversity as a management tool, budgeting and understanding the newspaper as a whole.
 -- Graduate-level management classes on conflict resolution, negotiations, creating and managing change, team building and problem solving.
 -- A "Total Community Coverage" seminar on improving and broadening coverage of multicultural communities.
 The training fee will be waived for winners of the IJE Management Training Fellowships sponsored by The New York Times. Breakfast and lunch will be provided each day.
 Candidates for the fellowship must have at least five years of daily newspaper experience and be nominated by their employers. Newspapers nominating candidates for the fellowships are responsible for transportation and housing costs.
 Participants will be selected by a committee consisting of representatives of The New York Times, IJE and NAHJ.
 Participation is also open to up to 10 daily newspaper managers who are not members of NAHJ, including white, African American, Asian American and Native American professionals from either editorial or non- editorial departments. The training fee is $500.
 Applicants may obtain the fellowship applications from IJE by calling (510) 891-9202 or writing to IJE, 1211 Preservation Park Way, Oakland, CA 94612. The application deadline is May 17, 1993.
