The Ida B. Wells Fellowship promotes diversity in journalism by helping to create a pipeline of investigative reporters of color who bring diverse backgrounds, experiences, and interests to their work. The one-year fellowship helps reporters complete their first substantial work of investigative reporting by providing a $20,000 award and editorial guidance. Fellows will also receive funds to cover travel and other reporting costs. Journalists of color are strongly encouraged to apply, as are other reporters who believe their presence would contribute substantially to diversifying investigative reporting in other ways.
