Awards & Fellowships
About: A free, two-and-a-half-day workshop for working reporters that will cover the basic science of genomics and explore advances in the field that are changing the way diseases are diagnosed and treated, novel crop varieties are developed, forensic evidence is interpreted, and new materials and fuels are being produced.
Deadlines: February1, 2019
 
About: The fellowship begins with intensive training in public policy, qualitative interviewing, and ethnographic and survey methods. Fellows will then spend a year conducting in-person interviews with families across America to learn about their lives, relationships, jobs, health, and well-being. When the interviewing ends, fellows will reconvene for a second training institute in data analysis. The fellowship is paid and is designed for graduating seniors, graduate students, and anyone committed to tackling the country’s most pressing problems. The position begins in June 2019 and concludes in summer 2020.
Deadline: February 7, 2019
 
About: They are looking for talented, service-oriented journalists who want to serve under-covered areas to provide Americans with the information they need to improve their communities and hold powerful institutions accountable. In 2018, they selected 13 journalists and placed them in newsrooms across the country with the aim of reporting on under-covered issues and communities. In 2019, they will place 28 journalists around the country!
Deadlines: February 8, 2019 
 
About:   Five investigative journalists will receive year-long fellowships to report on the right to land and housing, and on the specific question:

Deadline:  February 10, 2019
 
About: The Fellowship is a two-year program focusing on journalism in a changing digital world. The Fellowship program consists of two 12-month rotations at our top metro papers.
