EWA Seeks Proposals for In-Depth Reporting Projects
Deadline to apply is Friday, March 6.
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 on consequential issues in education. This will be the ninth class of EWA Reporting Fellows.
“Our journalist members told us they wanted more opportunities to dig deep into topics they’re passionate about — and we listened,” said EWA Executive Director Caroline Hendrie. “We’ve been delighted by the outstanding projects the fellows have produced.”
To date, EWA has supported more than 60 projects, resulting in a rich array of high-quality education stories in various media in communities across the country.
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, including travel for reporting, relief from regular newsroom duties, and attending workshops.
In this round, EWA is inviting proposals on a variety of topics, including adolescent learning and well-being, improving school curriculum and its delivery, improving pathways to postsecondary success, and more. For more information on the specific topics that are of particular interest in this round, please carefully review our FAQ page. That document also includes other critical information for applicants.
The application deadline is Friday, March 6, 2020. Fellowship recipients will be notified of their status in April.
