The Education Writers Association is pleased to announce its 12th class of EWA Reporting Fellows, part of the organization’s drive to support enterprising journalism that informs the public about consequential issues in education.
EWA selected 12 projects in this round. Each EWA Reporting Fellowship provides up to $8,000 to help cover reporting costs, plus other assistance.
“For education reporters, getting the time and resources they need to tell stories that make a difference is often much harder than it should be,” said Caroline Hendrie, EWA’s executive director. “We hope that this fresh round of support will move our members a step closer to reaching their own ambitious goals.”
The newest class of EWA Reporting Fellows represents a diverse mix of news outlets, with most projects to be published during the 2021-22 academic year.
The EWA Reporting Fellowship program is supported in part by grants from the Ascendium Education Group, Carnegie Corporation of New York, Funders for Adolescent Science Translation (FAST), Kresge Foundation, Lumina Foundation, Pritzker Children’s Initiative, and Walton Family Foundation.
