EAST GREENSBORO, N.C (May 20, 2024) – Rosegalie Cineus ‘24, who graduated from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University’s Journalism and Mass Communication (JOMC) Department, has been chosen as one of eight fellows for the Dow Jones HBCU (historically Black college or university) Media Collective program.

Cineus, an Honors College student and multimedia major from Cranston, Rhode Island, is the first North Carolina A&T student to be selected for the program.

“Being chosen as the inaugural A&T JOMC fellow for the Dow Jones HBCU Media Collective Program is a testament to Rosegalie’s talent and dedication,” said Yahya Kamalipour, Ph.D., interim JOMC department chair. “The department is proud of her and thrilled to see her recognized on a national level.”

This year’s fellows were hand-selected by deans and faculty members from their respective institutions. Other HBCUs in this year’s program are Bowie State University, Florida A&M University, Howard University, Morehouse College, Morgan State University and Spelman College.

The Dow Jones HBCU Media Collective program, now in its second year, has incorporated an international component to broaden students’ understanding of global opportunities and enhance newsroom diversity. The program includes a five-day trip to London, providing beneficial exposure to News Corp properties such as The Sun, The Times, Times Radio, The Fifth, talkSPORT and Virgin Radio.

“This program will allow me to really sharpen my skills and storytelling,” said Cineus. “I am excited to soak up valuable knowledge during my time there.”

From May 29 to June 12, students enrolled in the program will collaborate with seasoned journalists at Dow Jones, Barron’s and MarketWatch newsrooms. Additionally, they will engage in newsroom training conducted by The Wall Street Journal. The program’s initial phase will also include graduate-level courses at Columbia University.

"I worked closely with Rosegalie this academic year and she has been an outstanding student,” said David Squires, a JOMC lecturer at A&T. “I know that the program will provide her with lifelong connections that she’ll value throughout her media career.”
