Deadline: 8 November 2023
The National Press Foundation has selected Charlotte for the third Future of the American Child journalism training Jan. 21-24 2024, continuing the year-long examination of child well-being.
This cohort will consist of 15 journalists from across the U.S. for an expenses-paid training program.
- Leading researchers, policymakers, advocates and senior journalists will speak to the reporting fellows on topics such as:
- Impact of economic instability on children’s mental health.
- Effective policies and advocacy to address food insecurity.
- How quality health care improves educational achievement?
- Effective policy for youth in the labor force.
- Investments in foster care that prepare youth for leaving the system.
- How communities can transform to support child well-being?
- This competitive fellowship is open to U.S.-based reporters and editors working in print, television, radio/podcasting or online media. They greatly value diversity in all our programs. The foundation will cover airfare, hotel, most transportation and most meals.
- Applicants must submit a letter from their supervisors saying they will be permitted to attend all Charlotte-based sessions. Freelance journalists must provide a letter from an editor indicating interest or intent to publish work from the fellowship if it meets their editorial standards. Applicants must also verify that they are up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations.
