EWA Invites Education Journalists to Apply for Fellowships With Global Lens
2017 EWA Reporting Fellowship: U.S. Education in Global Context
The Education Writers Association is pleased to announce a call for proposals for its next class of EWA Reporting Fellows, this time with a focus on U.S. education in an international context. The fellowships provide financial awards to journalists to undertake ambitious reporting and writing projects. This will be the third class of EWA Reporting Fellows.
“We are excited to once again offer an opportunity for enterprising journalists to produce the kind of in-depth coverage that can be difficult to execute without extra support,” said EWA Executive Director Caroline Hendrie. “In this round, we are asking Fellows to think more globally, to inform the educational challenges in this country with an international perspective.”
EWA expects to select three reporting fellows through a competitive application process. Each fellow will receive up to $8,000 to use toward a reporting project, as well as other assistance. Recipients will have significant flexibility in how to use the funds, including travel for reporting, relief from regular newsroom duties, and attending workshops.
EWA is inviting proposals that seek to advance public understanding of U.S. K-12 education and student achievement by looking beyond America’s borders. Of particular interest are stories that explore the connections between educational challenges, policies, and/or practices in the United States (or individual states and local communities) and such issues in other countries.

The application deadline is Monday, March 27, 2017. Fellowship recipients will be notified of their status in April, and will have approximately eight months to complete their projects.
