Our Journalist membership is open to individuals whose primary professional activities involve reporting, writing, producing, editing, or otherwise preparing the news and editorial content of independent news media products. The definition of journalist also includes freelancers whose primary body of work is for independent news media, staffers at press associations or journalism education associations, journalism instructors, and journalism students.
In order to better serve our non-journalists, Supporting Community membership was developed to offer special benefits and opportunities to become involved in our mission. For our Supporting Community, we are offering a suite of new benefits, services and opportunities. In order to be eligible to attend our flagship National Seminar, registration as a Supporting Community member is required.
Community membership is open to anyone who does not meet the definition of Journalist member but is interested in supporting EWA’s mission. This includes reporters and writers for education organizations and institutions, educators, public information officers, education policymakers, and others interested in improving the coverage of education to create a better-informed public.
Student membership is open to current students at an accredited college or university, who aspire to a career in reporting or interpreting education.
