The Dart Center Ochberg Fellowship has been established by the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies and the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma in order to build a cohort of journalists better prepared to report responsibly and credibly on violence and traumatic events, including crime, family violence, natural disasters and accidents, war, and genocide.
The Dart Center provides six or more expense-paid fellowships to mid-career journalists who want to apply knowledge of emotional trauma to improving their reporting of violent events.
Fellows will attend a two-day seminar on the role emotional trauma plays in coverage of violent events, then will have access to all events and speakers in the annual conference of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies. The 2005 ISTSS conference will be held November 1-6, 2005, in Toronto.
Fellowships are open to: print and broadcast reporters, photographers, editors, and producers with at least five years of journalism experience.
Program information and application forms are available at the Dart Center web site.
