The National Center on Disability and Journalism is partnering for a third year with The New York Times on a fellowship to develop journalists with an expertise in coverage of disability issues.
Early career journalists are encouraged to apply for the one-year fellowship to cover disability issues and people with disabilities as part of the incoming New York Times Fellowship class.
The Disability Journalism Fellowship is designed to address the lack of coverage of disability issues in journalism. It will provide fellows with mentorship, a peer network and training on covering disabilities. The position is funded through the Ford Foundation’s philanthropic support.
Applications will be accepted through March 24.
