The Spotlight Investigative Journalism Fellowship offers a unique opportunity to work with investigative editors and reporters at the Boston Globe. Apply by April 26 for the one-year program, which offers an award of up to $100,000 for a journalist or team of journalists.
Participant Media and The Boston Globe are proud to sponsor the fourth year of the Spotlight Investigative Journalism Fellowship. The fellowship awards up to $100,000 for one or more individuals or teams of journalists to work on in-depth research and reporting projects. The chosen journalist(s) will collaborate with established investigative reporters and editors from The Boston Globe’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Spotlight Team.
It’s up to you whether to apply as an individual or as part of a team. You also have the choice of pursuing your own investigation or following leads developed by Globe journalists.You don’t have to live in Boston to be a Spotlight Fellow, but you’ll need to visit regularly for meetings.
The primary goal is to do great journalism like “Secrets in the Sky,” from 2016 Spotlight Fellows Jaimi Dowdell and Kelly Carr, and “Quiet Skies,” from 2018 Fellow Jana Winter. The stories should be of keen interest to a national or New England audience.
The 2019 application deadline will be extended until Friday, April 26 at 12pm PST.
