Fellowships for reporting on conflict, violence open [Worldwide]

Posted on Jan 12, 2022 in Specialized Topics

Midcareer journalists who want to deepen their knowledge of trauma and improve coverage of violence, conflict and tragedy can apply for a fellowship.

This year, the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma, a project of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, will select 12 journalists as Dart Center Ochberg Fellows.

The next program will be held July 22 to 28 at Columbia University in New York.

Fellows attend background briefings by prominent interdisciplinary experts in the trauma and mental health fields; conversations with journalist colleagues on issues of ethics, craft and other aspects of professional practice; and a host of other opportunities for intellectual engagement and peer learning.

The fellowship covers travel to and accommodations in New York, meals and other expenses directly related to participation.

The application deadline is Feb. 22.
