Applications Open for the Higher Education Media Fellowship

Applications are now open for the Higher Education Media Fellowship. Selected Fellows are awarded $10,000—$5,000 as a stipend and $5,000 towards a reporting project focused on postsecondary career and technical education (CTE).

The Higher Education Media Fellowship at the Institute for Citizens & Scholars aims to increase the number of journalists with the tools and networks to provide richer and more comprehensive coverage of postsecondary education, particularly career and technical education. The Fellowship program is sponsored by the ECMC Foundation and administered by the Institute for Citizens & Scholars. 

The six-month, non-residential program begins with an expense-paid symposium where Fellows learn about the CTE field, gain professional development, and work with peers and mentors. 
The HEM Fellowship is open to all U.S. journalists who are education, business, investigative, or workforce reporters or have work experience that includes reporting on education and associated work force development, social, or public policy issues. The Fellowships is open to journalists working in any medium. 

The application deadline is August 5, 2022.
