DEADLINE: New England First Amendment Institute
The New England First Amendment Coalition (NEFAC) will host its 13th annual New England First Amendment Institute from Oct 29-31, 2023 at Northeastern University in Boston.
NEFAC provides the tuition-free investigative journalism institute each year for 25 working journalists within New England. It includes workshops and presentations featuring some of the country’s most elite investigative reporters, editors and media attorneys. More than 300 journalists from 100 local news organizations have benefited from the New England First Amendment Institute since it began in 2011.
NEFAI fellows learn the latest investigative and database reporting techniques, state-specific public records and open meeting laws, and how to best obtain documents through the federal Freedom of Information Act, among other skills.
Deadline to apply: Aug 18, 2023.
The New England First Amendment Coalition established the James W. Foley Scholarship in February 2015 to honor the slain journalist and New Hampshire native. The scholarship provides funding for one fellow to attend the institute without travel or lodging expenses.
