Call for Applicants: Ida B. Wells Fellowship

Call for Applicants: Ida B. Wells Fellowship

The Investigative Fund is looking for applicants for the Ida B. Wells Fellowship. The Fellowship will award each winner a $10,000 stipend plus funds to cover out-of-pocket reporting costs. The fellows will also receive extensive mentoring, legal counsel, research resources, assistance with story placement, and training at the annual Investigative Reporters and Editors conference. Journalists of color are strongly encouraged to apply to the fellowship, as are other reporters who believe their presence would contribute substantially to diversifying investigative reporting in other ways. The goal is to promote diversity in journalism by helping to create a pipeline of investigative reporters of color. The one-year fellowship will provide four emerging reporters with the opportunity to complete their first substantial piece of investigative reporting.
