Thanks to the generosity of many, IRE is fortunate to have funding available to provide fellowships to its training events. These fellowships provide financial assistance to attend IRE boot camps. This month, IRE awarded four fellowships for the March 2018 CAR Boot Camp.
Lauren Rosenthal from North Country Public Radio (Canton, New York), Simone Weichselbaum from the Marshall Project (New York) and Kyle Kaminski from the Traverse City Record-Eagle (Traverse City, Michigan) received the Total Newsroom Training Fellowship.
Total Newsroom Training (TNT) Fellowships are open to those who have completed two days of TNT training between 2013 and 2017.
Additionally, thanks to The Fund for Rural Computer-Assisted Reporting, a journalist from a news organization in a rural area is able to receive the R-CAR Fellowship. Established by IRE member Daniel Gilbert, the fellowship is intended to provide rural reporters with skills that will help them uncover stories that otherwise would not come to light. The fellowship is offered in conjunction with the Institute for Rural Journalism and Community Issues at the University of Kentucky.
Sara Baranowski from the Iowa Falls Times Citizen received the R-CAR Fellowship.
