JOURNALISM FELLOWSHIP


Education Week Gregory M. Chronister Journalism Fellowship

Editorial Projects in Education Inc. (EPE) is pleased to announce the inaugural Education Week Gregory M. Chronister Journalism Fellowship, to be awarded annually to an enterprising journalist in support of a reporting project that illuminates a significant issue in pre-K-12 education.

The fellowship is meant to honor and reflect the now-retired Gregory M. Chronister, who helped lead Education Week as executive editor for 11 years, and as managing editor, associate editor, and Commentary editor for 21 years before that. Greg was known for his commitment to producing balanced, thorough, high-quality reporting that could improve American education, and for his keen eye on journalistic detail and big-picture context.

The kindness and humanity that Greg showed his colleagues in the workplace have deeply informed Education Week’s journalism, which combines independent, incisive coverage with a belief in the critical importance of a civil discourse around highly contested issues of pre-K-12 policy and practice.
