EWA Invites Education Journalists to Apply for Fellowships

The Education Writers Association is pleased to announce a call for proposals for its next class of EWA Reporting Fellows. Entering its second year, the highly sought-after fellowships provide financial awards to education journalists to undertake ambitious reporting and writing projects.

“Enterprising education journalists are often hard-pressed to find the time and resources to pursue the kind of in-depth stories they know make a difference,” said EWA Executive Director Caroline Hendrie. “Our reporting fellowships support special projects that otherwise might not be possible.”

EWA will select approximately six reporting fellows for 2017 through a competitive application process. Each fellow will receive up to $8,000 to use toward a reporting project, as well as other assistance.

EWA is inviting proposals for coverage of two related themes: efforts to rethink and reinvent the American high school experience, and innovative models of instruction and assessment at the K-12 level. For more details on EWA’s non-residential fellowship program, see our FAQ page.

The application deadline is Nov. 30, 2016. Fellowship recipients will be notified of their status by Jan. 16, 2017, and will have approximately eight months to complete their projects.
