The Education Writers Association is pleased to announce its ninth 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 is an unprecedented time for the news industry, the education sector, and our nation,” said Caroline Hendrie, EWA’s executive director. “We are proud to help our members pursue in-depth projects on critical topics, including on the far-reaching impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
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.
