Dedicated to Improving the Lives of Blind and Visually Impaired People

Disability Journalism Fellowship Now Available: Application Deadline is March 24, 2023

Applications are now being accepted for a fellowship to cultivate the development of journalists specializing in coverage of disability issues. The New York Times and the National Center on Disability and Journalism, a service of Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, are working together for the third year on this fellowship “to address the lack of coverage of disability issues in journalism.” Fellows will be provided with mentors, a peer network, and training related to covering disability issues. The Times is seeking candidates for its 2023-24 Fellowship class who are “strong writers and creative thinkers, and are eager to throw themselves into a yearlong, intensive journalistic experience.” This program is intended for “an early career journalist.” For more information and to apply, read the listing here for Reporting Fellow, Disability.
