2016 National Fellowship

Program Description: 

Twenty-three journalists joined us for an all-expenses-paid five-day training program at our home base on the University of Southern California campus in Los Angeles, an international city that has been called a "proving ground" for a multicultural society.

The 2016 program was designed for journalists who want to do groundbreaking reporting on vulnerable children and families and the community conditions that contribute to their well-being. Fellows gained insights into the latest research on how a child’s lifetime development is affected by early experiences of trauma, including abuse, neglect, parental stress and community violence. Other workshops and discussions – with distinguished journalists, researchers, clinicians and community case workers -- delved into the impact of poverty on children, including food insecurity, substandard housing and parents’ economic insecurity.

We also explored the connections between health and place, or how neighborhood, work and home environments impact health, well-being and life expectancy. Journalists learned about innovative prevention and clinical programs that suggest ways to address chronic ills.

Fellows also received advice on engagement strategies that can help to maximize the impact of reporting. We challenged them to engage more deeply with the communities their news outlet serves. Each Fellow will receive a  grant of $2,000-$10,000 and six months of mentoring by a senior journalist.

The 2016 National Fellowship was underwritten by generous grants from The , the and
