Waitlist Started for EWA’s 2018 Higher Education Seminar

Due to overwhelming demand, as of Aug. 21, 2018, the Education Writers Association has reached capacity for its 2018 Higher Education Seminar. 

Journalists who want to attend but have not yet received an official email from us confirming your scholarship or registration have two options:

  • If you have already been in communication with an EWA staffer about attending, contact that staffer as soon as possible to secure your slot.
  • If you have not yet applied to or communicated with EWA, but wish to attend, you can put your name on our waitlist. Additional space may open up in September. We will keep those on the waitlist updated as we get more information.

By the way, if you have registered for the event, and now realize you can not attend, please let us know as soon as possible so that a journalist on the waiting list can attend.

Don’t despair if you miss out on this event! There are plenty of other great EWA opportunities you can still take advantage of! (Though if the response to the higher education event is any indication, you might want to file your applications as soon as possible.)

  • Training event: Covering teachers - In Chicago on Oct. 18-19, EWA is holding a two-day seminar on covering the increasingly politically active and important teacher workforce. Attendees will learn how to find stories in teacher records and personnel data, hear from reporters who have produced groundbreaking coverage, and explore trends that could shape the profession for years to come. Click here for more information and a link to the registration form.
  • Funding opportunity: EWA Fellowships – Journalists have until Aug. 31 to apply for the latest round of EWA Fellowships. EWA will provide up to $8,000 – as well as coaching and other resources – to fund ambitious education-related reporting projects. For advice about applying to this prestigious program, attend our express 30-minute webinar to be held Aug. 23 at 2 p.m. EDT.

We’re working on even more training events for the fall and winter, so watch our Twitter feed (@edwriters), join our Facebook page, sign up for one (or both) of our journalist-only listservs, and/or check out our newsletters to make sure you don’t miss out on anything else.
