The Education Writers Association is pleased to announce its 11th 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.
This round of fellowships focused on supporting reporting and storytelling on higher education.
“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt education, it’s important to focus on the crucial role colleges and universities play in the lives of individual students and in society at large,” said Caroline Hendrie, EWA’s executive director. “We’re pleased to support a new set of ambitious journalism projects by our members.”
EWA selected seven projects 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, with projects to be published during the 2020-21 academic year.
The EWA Reporting Fellowship program is supported in part by grants from the Ascendium Education Group, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Carnegie Corporation of New York, Funders for Adolescent Science Translation (FAST), Kresge Foundation, Lumina Foundation, Pritzker Children’s Initiative, and Walton Family Foundation.
