Provides assistance to attend a Data Journalism Bootcamp taking place August 7-11, 2023 in Columbia, Missouri.
Established by IRE member Daniel Gilbert, this fellowship is for reporters at small news organizations pursuing data-driven investigative stories that provide a public service for people in rural communities. The fellowship is offered in conjunction with the Institute for Rural Journalism and Community Issues at the University of Kentucky. The goal of the fellowship is to foster investigative reporting in rural areas by assisting small news organizations that lack the resources to send reporters to an IRE data journalism bootcamp.
U.S.-based professional journalists working for:
-a newspaper with circulation fewer than 40,000 with a significant rural audience.
-a television or radio station outside the top 100 Nielsen markets with a significant rural audience.
-a nonprofit news organization with demonstrated rural coverage and readership.
-freelance journalists who have: a clearly defined project with rural impact; a small, rural news organization committed to publishing the story; and most of their income from independent journalism.
If you wish to contribute to this fellowship, you can donate through IRE’s online donation form and indicate the name of the fund in the form.
