Higher Ed Seminar 2019

University of Michigan

Held on the campus of the University of Michigan, this journalist-only intensive training event will offer two days of high-impact learning opportunities, including sessions on timely topics in higher education and practical advice for covering them effectively.

This year’s seminar will examine how higher education institutions are adjusting to new technologies, a reduction in the number of “traditional” college students, and a political environment marked by anti-intellectualism and polarization.

Update – Sept. 3, 2019

Due to overwhelming demand, the Education Writers Association has stopped taking applications for this event.

All scholarship recipients have been notified. If you have received a scholarship, you must confirm your plans to attend by registering and booking your travel plans – including reserving a room at the seminar hotel – immediately.

If you applied but have not received a scholarship award notification, you are on a waiting list.
