The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) is excited to announce the launch of the 2013 McGraw-Hill Data Journalism program, which will train English and Spanish-speaking journalists who report for minority and other underserved populations on a variety of journalism tools and techniques, including how to mine economic and financial databases, and how to find, interpret, visualize and report on this data. The program will feature a free 8-week online course (in both English and Spanish) which is designed to be completed at your own pace, followed by an 8-week mentoring session, during which participants work individually with the course instructors to polish their stories they produce. The best stories will award the participants with a trip to New York City to interview and meet with recognized financial and economic experts.
We would appreciate it if you could share this opportunity with your colleagues and the rest of your professional network. There is no application fee.
The deadline to apply is September 15, 2013.
