The Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism will award two $1,000 fellowships to attend the annual conference of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW) in Washington April 4-6.
This year marks SABEW’s historic 50-year anniversary. The Reynolds Center fellowship is open to full-time journalists who want to attend the center’s free training before and during the conference, as well as other sessions.
The center will present the following training:
- Breaking Local Stories with Economic Data, a free, pre-conference workshop from 9 a.m. to noon April 4.
- Great Sources, Great Storytelling, from 11 a.m. to noon April 6, with BusinessJournalism.org blogger Rosland Gammon.
Last year’s winners were Emery Cowan of the Durango Herald and Christopher Nelson, a freelance journalist based in Baltimore.
To apply for a fellowship, please email by 11:59 p.m. PT Feb. 18 the following to Reynolds Executive Director Linda Austin, with “SABEW Fellowship” in the subject line:
- Name, position, media outlet (if affiliated with one), email address, phone number.
- A resume.
- A 500-word statement on how attending the Reynolds Center training sessions and the rest of the SABEW Conference would benefit your professional development. Please include in this statement how many times you have attended SABEW previously, whether you would be able to attend this year without this support, and what your plan is for sharing what you would learn with colleagues.
As part of the fellowship, winners will be invited to write a blog post for BusinessJournalism.org providing useful tips for other journalists on what they learned at SABEW.
Winners of Reynolds Center fellowships will be notified by Feb. 26.
SABEW has other conference fellowship opportunities on its website.
