The Higher Education Media Fellowship 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 (CTE). The Fellowship program is sponsored by the ECMC Foundation and administered by the Institute for Citizens & Scholars.

Each Fellow will be awarded $10,000—$5,000 as a stipend and $5,000 towards the reporting project. The six-month program begins with an expense-paid post-secondary career and technical education (CTE) symposium. Following the symposium, Fellows must complete a reporting project, such as a special report or series.

The Fellowship is open to early to mid- career U.S. journalists who are education beat reporters or those whose work experience includes reporting on education and associated workforce development, social, or public policy issues. Potential Fellows will be interested in deepening and expanding their understanding of postsecondary education with a specific emphasis on CTE. Fellows will be staff and professional freelance journalists who are able to work independently while holding their regular jobs or commitments. Print, radio, TV, and online editors and journalists from local and national publications and digital-only news platforms are eligible, as are freelancers who target mainstream/corporate and independent media outlets. All media types may apply. 

Applications are due December 10, 2021
