EWA Announces New Education Reporting Fellows
The Education Writers Association is pleased to announce its second class of EWA Reporting Fellows, under an initiative aimed at supporting enterprising journalism projects.
“We were heartened by the quality of the applications and the continued enthusiasm among EWA members for pursuing in-depth reporting projects,” said Caroline Hendrie, EWA’s executive director. “We expect the fellows’ work to advance important conversations about policies and practices shaping America’s schools.”
Six applications were selected for the second round of EWA Reporting Fellowships. EWA will provide up to $8,000 to help cover reporting costs, plus other assistance, for each project.
The newest class of EWA Reporting Fellows represents a diverse group of journalists representing different types of news outlets. The projects are expected to be published by the end of the year.
