Fall 2017 Calendar of Events
From heated debates over free speech to the Trump administration’s threats to deport undocumented students, these are tense times on college campuses. For reporters who cover higher education, questions abound and important stories need to be told.
On Oct. 2-3, EWA will bring together journalists at Georgia State University in Atlanta to explore pressing issues in education after high school. (Here’s the preliminary agenda.) At this journalist-only seminar you will hear:
Covering Early Learning: Putting the Pieces Together
Chicago • Erikson Institute • November 6-7, 2017
From the moment a child is born, the learning begins. By the time kindergarten arrives, gaps have set in that can last a lifetime.
In states red and blue, policymakers and advocates are increasingly looking to children’s earliest years to address the achievement gaps that have long plagued the U.S. education system. But as investment and enrollment in early childhood programs grow, access, quality, and cost all present problems.

A new school year also means upcoming EWA seminars!
EWA gathers experts who provide diverse perspectives and research to help you cover education. You’ll also have the opportunity to network with other reporters from national and local outlets.
We provide travel and registration scholarships for qualified journalists. These scholarships can cover most, if not all, of your travel expenses.
