5:00 pm EST

The deadline to apply for this Dart Center's reporting Fellowship has been extended. The new deadline is March 11, 2022 at 5:00 pm EST.

For the second year, the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma is offering a project-based virtual fellowship on issues related to young children’s growth, development and wellbeing. Topics may be directly related to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, but they can also concern other current trends and circumstances.

Fifteen journalists from around the world will be selected for the fellowship – including print, online, audio or video-based. Freelancers, contract and staff journalists are all invited to apply. Applications for projects about children up to age six and their caregivers will be given priority.

The Fellowship will run from May to November 2022.

Each Fellow will be awarded $2,000 USD to use towards reporting a story or project. In addition, Fellows will also be assigned an experienced project coach and convene for monthly webinars featuring experts in the fields of science, education and public health. Webinars will be scheduled with varying time zones in mind.
