If you’re eager to dig deeper with a long-term education reporting project, check out the Spencer Fellowship at Columbia Journalism School. We can give you the time and resources you need to produce extraordinary work. Two residential fellows will spend the 2021-22 academic year on the Columbia campus and two non-residential fellows will work from their current locations. Both groups of fellows get guidance from professors at the journalism school as well as other departments at Columbia. All forms of media are welcome! The application deadline is Feb. 1, 2021. For info, go to spencerfellows.org.
We are looking for reporters and editors who want to write about an important education issue. Ideas covering all levels of education are welcome, everything from preschool to graduate school. We are open to all platforms as wel. Past fellows have produced radio documentaries, written books and produced series for newspapers, the web and magazines. Fellows get a stipend for the academic year and money to cover reporting expenses. Four fellows will be selected in the spring. Two will work from the Columbia campus. Two others will report from their current locations.
