Applicants must propose a reporting project about young children and/or caregivers that can be completed and scheduled for publication or broadcast by November 30, 2022.

Journalists worldwide with an interest in reporting on young children can apply for a fellowship.

Fellows will be assigned an experienced project coach and convene for monthly webinars featuring experts in the fields of science, education, and public health. Webinars will be scheduled with varying time zones in mind.

Each fellow will be awarded US$2,000 to use towards reporting a story or project.

    The institute said: “As we enter the third year of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the long-term stressors on children and caregivers around the world are becoming clearer, especially for those living in unstable environments of economic insecurity and social adversity”.

    The definition of what many are calling the “new normal” varies widely, depending on the socio-economic and psychological health and stability of a family or population.
