Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships of $10,000 to USA journalists for reporting projects on education. Fellows will participate in a career and technical education conference, complete and publish a long-form project, series of articles, or special report, and attend a networking event with other fellows and professionals. Funding is intended 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 

  • The six-month, non-residential 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.  
  • Fellows will also attend a CTE Collaborative Convening hosted by the ECMC Foundation in the fall. 

Fellows choose a topic related to postsecondary career and technical education for their reporting project. The project may be in whatever medium the Fellow works–prose, audio, video, photo–so long as the piece is published. Reporting projects should be a special report or series of articles or a similar long-form project for other mediums.
