The Center for Public Interest Journalism will offer five Philadelphia-area journalists support to attend the Investigative Reporters and Editors Conference this summer in San Francisco.
According to ire.org:
The best in the business will gather for more than 100 panels, hands-on classes and special presentations about covering business, public safety, government, health care, education, the military, the environment and other key beats. Speakers will share strategies for locating documents and gaining access to public records, finding the best stories and managing investigations. Join the discussion about how to practice investigative journalism in print, broadcast, Web and alternative newsroom models.
CPIJ grants of $1,600 are available to offset registration, travel, lodging and per diem costs.
