The Education Writers Association is pleased to announce a call for proposals for its next class of EWA Reporting Fellows, in support of enterprising news coverage of education. The fellowships provide financial awards to journalists to undertake ambitious reporting and writing projects. This will be the 14th class of EWA Reporting Fellows.
To date, EWA has supported more than 110 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 $10,000 to use toward a reporting project, as well as other assistance.
“This is a unique opportunity for education journalists to take their work to the next level,” EWA Executive Director Caroline W. Hendrie said. “We look forward to another round of exciting and ambitious project proposals.”
Recipients will have significant flexibility in how to use the funds, including travel for reporting, relief from regular newsroom duties, and attending workshops.
Fellows will generally be expected to complete and publish their projects within a calendar year.
EWA is inviting proposals on a variety of timely and important topics. 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 Tuesday, April 5. Fellowship recipients will be notified of their status by early May.
