The Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma is now accepting applications for the 2022 edition of its Global Early Childhood Reporting Fellowship focused on illuminating issues related to young children’s growth, development and wellbeing.

The Center is offering a project-based virtual fellowship on issues related to young children’s growth, development and wellbeing. The 2022 programme will support 15 journalists with reporting stipends, mentoring, and ongoing education to deepen their knowledge. Topics may be directly related to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, but they can also concern other current trends and circumstances.

Fifteen journalists from around the world will be selected for the fellowship from print, online, audio or video-based outlets. Freelancers, contract and staff journalists are also eligible to apply.

Applications for projects about children up to age six and their caregivers will be given priority.

Each Successful fellow will be awarded US$2,000 to use towards reporting a story or project. In addition, Fellows will also be assigned an experienced project coach and convene for monthly webinars featuring experts in the fields of science, education and public health. Webinars will be scheduled with varying time zones in mind.

For consideration, Applicants must be proficient in English, although projects can be undertaken and produced in another language. Applicants must propose a reporting project about young children and/or caregivers that can be completed and scheduled for publication or broadcast by November 30, 2022.

Submission of applications close on February 28, 2022.
