Deadline Tuesday to apply for journalism workshop on aging and retirement June 12-15 in D.C.

Tuesday is the deadline to apply for a fellowship to "Aging and Retirement: Understanding Generational Changes," a journalism workshop to be held June 12-15 at the National Press Foundation’s Media Training Center in Washington, D.C. The fellowship will focus on areas such as an aging population of baby boomers moving into retirement without the cash to last a lifetime, Social Security and Medicare systems heading towards a crisis and younger generations who aren’t faring much better.

The all-expenses-paid fellowship covers airfare, ground transportation, hotel costs and most meals. Applicants will need to submit: two samples of their work from the last year; resume or complete Linkedin profile; and a letter of support from an editor or supervisor (freelancers can submit a letter from someone who has edited or published their work). Applicants should also be able to explain why they are interested in this program, how they will use the program to benefit readers and a brief, narrative autobiography.
