The Center on Media, Crime and Justice at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City has extended to Sept. 17 the deadline to apply for its juvenile justice reporting fellowships.  Details, applications forms are available here. On Oct 4-5, fellows will attend "a special conference to help journalists cover the latest developments in juvenile justice, and engage with some of the leading players and experts in the field," Center Director Stephen Handelman says.

The conference, called “Unfinished Business: Juveniles and Justice,” will provide useful background and story ideas for journalists. Fellows will be chosen on a competitive basis, based on their interests, proposed projects, and editors’ support. The fellowship includes travel to NYC and accommodations.
