The Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting in Champaign, IL, and Illinois Humanities are looking for an emerging journalist with interest and experience in community engagement for the 2018-19 Engagement Fellowship.
The fellow will spend 12 months working with the center to cultivate relationships with communities in the Champaign-Urbana area working in and affected by the agricultural industry. This fellowship aims to create opportunities for the public to inform what topics the center should investigate; to expand the center’s audience and source base and deepen trust; and to increase the positive impact of the center’s work in local communities.
The fellow will also come to Chicago for additional training and to meet other engagement journalists from across the country.
Application deadline is Sept. 7.
