Fellowship: Criminal-justice reporting
The National Press Foundation seeks applicants for an all-expenses-paid fellowship for journalists to enhance skills, increase knowledge and recharge their reporting on criminal justice.
The program is from Nov. 10-12, followed by the American Society of Criminology Conference, Nov. 13-16 in San Francisco. The application deadline is this Friday, Sept. 20.
The U.S. spends $80 billion a year to keep people behind bars, on probation or on parole. Criminal justice issues affect literally every community. The National Press Foundation is offering a special all-expenses-paid opportunity for 20 journalists to take a deep look at the criminal justice system.
Over three days, NPF training will address: incarceration data, pre-trial justice, specialty courts, violence and weapons, implementation of the First Step Act, incarceration impact on families, re-entry into society, and more. With this background, journalists will then cover the four-day American Society of Criminology annual conference, with full access to presenters and abstracts.
The all-expenses-paid fellowship covers airfare, ground transportation, hotel costs and most meals. Details
