2018-2019 John Jay Juvenile Justice Reporting Fellowships

Up to 35 travel fellowships will be awarded to working journalists to attend a two-day symposium, at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City October 4-5, 2018.  

The symposium, entitled “Unfinished Business:  Juveniles & Justice,” also coincides with Juvenile Justice Month.

It will bring journalists together with leading policymakers, researchers, advocates and justice-involved youth with the aim of developing or assisting new reporting on the current challenges of covering juvenile justice. Successful applicants will have access to research and other assistance during the fellowship year, 2018-2019.

To be eligible, applicants must be working in U.S.-based print, online or broadcast media (freelancers can apply), and submit project/story ideas related to juvenile justice either underway or planned. A supporting editor’s letter is also required.

DEADLINE FOR ALL APPLICATIONS: 11:59 EDT September 5, 2018

The symposium, fourth in a series of juvenile justice reporting fellowships organized by the Center on Media, Crime and Justice at John Jay College, is supported with grants from the Tow Foundation and the Annie E. Casey Foundation. The funders play no part in selection of fellows.
