The domestic violence reporting fellowship is one of the ongoing programs administered by the John Jay College Center on Media, Crime and Justice (CMCJ) to help journalists expand their evidence-based reporting on criminal justice topics. Successful applicants should be journalists in the tri-state area working for U.S.-based publications (print, online and broadcast outlets), who cover politics, government affairs, health, crime, police, courts, and related topics. Freelance journalists are also eligible to apply, as long as they fit program criteria. (See below.) Some reimbursement for travel and expenses is available.
