About Early Childhood Reporting Fellowship award

As we enter the third year of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the long-term stressors on children and caregivers around the world are becoming clearer, especially for those living in unstable environments of economic insecurity and social adversity. 

The definition of what many are calling the “new normal” varies widely, depending on the socio-economic and psychological health and stability of a family or population.

Vaccines have helped millions avoid hospitalization or death, but vaccine equity and hesitancy remain a worldwide problem.

And even beyond the pandemic, stressors on children and families remain grave, from malnutrition to political instability. Education and basic health care have been disrupted for millions of children, with the consequences still unraveling. 

While the pandemic has made it difficult for journalists to travel to professional workshops and easily undertake reporting on the ground, there is still a great need for in-depth reporting on these issues. 

For the second year, the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma is offering a project-based virtual fellowship on issues related to young children’s growth, development, and wellbeing.

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 – including print, online, audio, or video-based. Freelancers, contract, and staff journalists are all invited to apply. 

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

The Fellowship will run from May to November 2022.
