Dart center offers 2023 early childhood global reporting fellowship


THE Dart Center is inviting applications for the third edition of its Early Childhood Reporting Fellowship.

The program aims to illuminate issues related to young children’s growth and development, and the well-being of their caregivers.

Fellows will receive reporting stipends, coaching and monthly webinars to deepen knowledge on early childhood development and its intersection with the most pressing issues of today.

The 2023 program will support 15 journalists from around the world working in print, online, audio, video and multimedia with reporting stipends, coaching and mentoring, and ongoing education to deepen their knowledge.

The Fellowship will run from May to November 2023 – ending with a project in the publication pipeline.

The program’s focus is on the ways early experience affects the development of children, at a time when their brains are most malleable. Across the world, children are subjected to a host of stressors, from malnutrition to political instability to inequality and racism.

The organiser says, “In recent years, children have had to face violence and unrest from the war in Ukraine, oppression in Afghanistan, and a cascade of natural (often climate-change related) disasters. And of course, the global pandemic underscored widespread inequities across populations, and disrupted basic healthcare and education for millions of children.

“We are seeking projects that explore these – and other – circumstances affecting early childhood development, with a focus on the policies and situations that lead to adverse experiences as well as possible solutions.”

Freelancers along with both contract and staff reporters are all invited to apply.

The deadline for submission of applications is March 20, 2023. Interested applicants can apply here.
