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 Phoenix March 27-29.
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:
- Detecting Corporate Fraud, a free, pre-conference workshop, 1:30-4:30 p.m. March 27, with Theo Francis of The Wall Street Journal and Roddy Boyd of the Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation.
- Data Visualization: A Hands-On Primer for Business Journalists, from 8:45-11:45 a.m. March 28, during the conference, with Dianne Finch, visiting assistant professor of communications at Elon University.
Last year’s winners were Jacquelinne Mejia, formerly of EC Hispanic Media in Norwalk, Calif., and Darren L. Sands of BlackEnterprise.com.
To apply for a fellowship, please email by 11:59 p.m. PT Feb. 3 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.
