Reveal Investigative Fellowship 2018

Application Deadline- April 12, 2018

The Reveal Investigative Fellowship helps strengthen a field in which diversity of background and perspective are more crucial than in any other corner of media. Now in its third year, the program seeks fellows with expertise in three editorial areas: text, audio and video.

The 10-month fellowship, made possible with generous support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the Democracy Fund, emphasizes development of investigative reporting skills for early- to mid-career reporters and producers from diverse backgrounds. It is intended for journalists currently employed by other outlets and includes on-site training at CIR’s Emeryville headquarters, ongoing coaching and mentoring, travel reimbursement and a $10,000 stipend to support the resulting text, audio, video or multimedia projects.

Up to five fellows will be selected based on their proposals for investigative projects they want to pursue. The deadline to apply is April 12; applications can be found here.

In addition to the stipend, fellows will receive support to spend two weeks embedded at CIR receiving training and guidance in skills such as data analysis, document requests, audio gathering and interviewing techniques. They also will be sponsored to attend an annual investigative journalism conference. The rest of the fellowship will be spent at their home outlets, with continued mentoring by our editors, producers and reporters.

By the fellowship’s end, the fellows will have produced an investigation for their home outlets and for one or more of CIR’s properties, which include “Reveal,” an hourlong public radio show broadcast on 450 stations nationwide; the Reveal podcast; and the RevealNews.org website. Questions about the application process can be addressed to fellowship Director Martin G. Reynolds at mreynolds@revealnews.org.

Applicants should be able to commit to these fellowship activities:
  • Fellows selected will attend IRE in Orlando, June 14-17
  • The fellowship officially starts Sept. 1, 2018.
  • Graduation is June 2019 at IRE (location TBD).
  • Fellows must be able to attend two weeks of training. The first will be in early Nov. 2018 and again in Spring 2019. Both weeks will be held at CIR’s Emeryville, CA offices.
