Reporters who want to plunge into the robust world of federal economic and investment data should apply today for a week of immersive training in Washington, D.C.
What, where, how
From January 8 – 12, journalists will hear firsthand from the Federal Reserve and the FDIC, and will attend sessions featuring the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. Census Bureau and the Investment Company Institute. Reporters will speak directly with the government experts who compile and manage some of the country’s most important databases. This rare opportunity to understand how the government uses data is made possible by SABEW’s 2018 Goldschmidt Fellowship.
The 19 fellows receive stipends for food and travel, as well as complimentary lodging. Fellowships are available to reporters or editors at all experience levels (applications are limited to SABEW members), and employers are expected to allow the attendees to concentrate fully on the training.
The training takes place on the campus of George Washington University.
