Thank you to everyone who participated in and contributed to the "This Is Not a Drill" Journalism Workshop. The workshop raised many questions and concerns, set against the backdrop of Oahu, Hawaii on the one-year anniversary of the false missile alert.
But a four-day workshop can only scratch the surface of the many areas that need more focused attention, inquiry, and scrutiny.
It is with this in mind that Atomic Reporters and the Stanley Foundation ran a call for applications (now closed) for workshop participants and other qualified journalists to apply for the “This Is Not a Drill” investigative reporting fellowships.
Fellowships have been awarded to the following individuals and team to pursue additional reporting related to the themes of the "This Is Not a Drill" workshop:
Matthew Gault, Freelance Journalist
John Dale Grover, Editor, The National Interest
D. Parvaz, Global Politics Reporter, ThinkProgress
Hamzah Rifaat, Anchor, PTV World, and Sylvia Mishra, 2019 India-U.S. Fellow, New America
The fellowships are being administered by Atomic Reporters, with funding support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York. Each fellowship will cover reporting costs such as travel, accommodation, food, visas, translator fees, and other miscellaneous costs.
Check back soon to see the reporting that results from these fellowships.
