EWA Invites Journalists to Apply for Fellowships on K-12, Postsecondary Topics

*The deadline for this round of the EWA Reporting Fellowship program was Sept. 10, 2019. The application cycle is now closed.

The Education Writers Association is pleased to announce a call for proposals for its next class of EWA Reporting Fellows. The fellowships provide financial awards to journalists to undertake ambitious reporting and writing projects. This will be the eighth class of EWA Reporting Fellows.

“We welcome the opportunity to support in-depth, high-quality reporting by our journalist members and are excited to see the proposals brought forward in this round,” said EWA Executive Director Caroline Hendrie. “Our prior Fellows have told us of the power this assistance provides to bring important stories to fruition.”

EWA selects reporting fellows through a competitive application process. Each fellowship comes with 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, such as travel for reporting, relief from regular newsroom duties, hiring a contractor to provide data analysis and support, and attending workshops.

In this round, EWA is inviting proposals at both the K-12 and postsecondary levels, as well as plans that bridge those sectors. For information on the specific topics of particular interest in this round, please review our FAQ page. That document also includes other critical information for applicants.

The application deadline is Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2019. Fellowship recipients will be notified of their status in October.
