The Education Writers Association is pleased to announce its 10th class of EWA Reporting Fellows as part of the organization’s drive to support enterprising journalism that informs the public about consequential issues in education.
“Our journalist members are producing outstanding work in unprecedented circumstances as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing economic downturn,” said Caroline Hendrie, EWA’s executive director. “We are proud to support in-depth projects that focus needed attention on critical issues in K-12 and higher education.”
Ten projects were selected in this round. Each EWA Reporting Fellowship provides up to $8,000 to help cover reporting costs, plus other assistance.
The newest class of EWA Reporting Fellows represents a diverse mix of news outlets. The projects are expected to be published during the 2020-21 academic year.
