The Chronicle of Philanthropy, an independent news organization that covers nonprofits, foundations, and others involved in advancing the social good, is launching the Philanthropy & Nonprofit Accountability Fellowship.
This fellowship is part of an extensive collaboration with the Associated Press and the Conversation designed to shed light on one of the most undercovered — but crucial — sectors of American life.
Our goal is to give news organizations access to the tools and training they need to write powerful stories that attract and engage more of their readers and to expand their accountability journalism across a variety of beats, both during the fellowship and over the long haul.
Through this one-year fellowship, journalists at local, regional, and nonprofit news organizations will have the opportunity to work with the Chronicle of Philanthropy to develop and publish articles about the people and organizations in their regions or coverage areas that are trying to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems and improve the quality of life for all.
The newsrooms selected will each receive a $15,000 stipend to subsidize the work of reporters and editors on projects for publication at their own organizations and in the Chronicle. They will also work with and learn from editors and reporters who are part of our philanthropy partnership at the Associated Press and the Conversation and with national experts who can help them improve their journalism.
