"The Only Security of All is in a Free Press"

Juvenile Justice Fellowships

The Center on Media, Crime and Justice (CMCJ) at John Jay College of Criminal Justice invites applications for its second fellowship for reporters and editors on covering America’s troubled youth.

The one-year fellowship will help journalists identify and report on current developments in the juvenile justice system, and brief them on the significant political, legal and research trends that can inform their reporting. The centerpiece of the program is a two-day symposium in New York City, October 6-7, 2014 which will bring journalists together with leading practitioners and researchers. The program also includes a half-day workshop offered by CUNY Graduate School of Journalism on improving story impact through social media and data visualization techniques.

Selected Reporting Fellows will receive an all-expense paid trip to New York for the conference and be eligible to participate in a members-only online coaching and knowledge forum to provide hands-on assistance with stories during the fellowship period.

The fellowship is open to all journalists working in U.S. based media outlets. Previous background in the juvenile, criminal justice, or education beats a plus.
