Posted on Sep 12, 2022 in Data Journalism

Journalists and freelancers based in the United States can apply for a fellowship.

The National Press Foundation is offering the journalism fellowship “Your Body, Their Data? Reporting on Privacy, Tech and Biometrics.” This training will equip journalists to cover technical, legal, and policy developments on the new frontier of privacy — and turn them into stories that will resonate with audiences.

The program will be held Nov. 29 to Dec. 1 in Washington, D.C.

The fellowship covers hotel, airfare to Washington D.C. and most meals.

Featured speakers include federal regulators, scientists, lawyers, doctors, privacy experts, lawmakers or their staff, and those who work in Big Tech or oppose it.

The application deadline is Oct. 10.
