Center for Journalism Ethics at UW-Madison will pay up to 10 journalists from afar to attend annual conference April 24

On April 24, the Center for Journalism Ethics at the University of Wisconsin will host its 12th annual conference in Madison. "Journalism Ethics & The Crisis in Local News" conference will bring together news-media professionals, non-profit news leaders, media innovators, academics, students and the public to address the crisis in local journalism, with special attention to media ethics.

The conference is designed to provide a better understanding of the factors driving the crisis as well as concrete ideas for strengthening and protecting local journalism. The center is offering travel stipends, providing a way for local journalists from around the country to attend. The organizers seek up to 10 people who might attend with a $1,000 stipend. They want the group to be focused on local news in a meaningful way and to be diverse across such things as: race, ethnicity, gender and age; market size; medium; and pedigree (legacy newsrooms, startups, community publishers, ethnic press, etc.) If you would like to be considered, email us this week and we'll relay your interest.
