Reveal’s Investigative Fellowship program helps support journalists with a range of diverse backgrounds develop investigative reporting skills. The yearlong fellowship focuses on early- to mid-career reporters and producers in the United States.
Unlike fellowships that require residency, those chosen for the Reveal Investigative Fellowships work with our editors and reporters for close to a year on an investigative project, but remain employed at their home newsrooms – the majority of which are local outlets. This means that the skills they gain can be shared in real time with their editors and colleagues, and the work they produce can be published jointly by Reveal and their outlets.
Reveal provides fellows with extensive training and mentorship throughout the year, including on-site training at our Emeryville, California, headquarters; travel reimbursement; networking opportunities; and a stipend to support the resulting text, audio, video or multimedia projects.
The Reveal Investigative Fellowship program is made possible with generous support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. As we enter our fourth year of the fellowship program, we are proud to say that more than a dozen reporters have been part of the program, many have been honored with awards, and their reporting is yielding impact.
