2016 Egan Journalism Fellowship
Congratulations, 2016 Egan Journalism Fellows
Catholic Relief Services (CRS) has announced the recipients of its coveted 2016 Egan Journalism Fellowship, who will travel to Central America for 7-10 days in October 2016 to examine the root causes of migration. The journalists represent Catholic and secular media and, for the first time, a Spanish-language secular journalist. They are:
- Mariana Veraza (@MarianaVerazaTV), video journalist, Univision
- Robert Christian (@RGC3), editor, Millennial
- Ashley McKinless (@AshleyMcKinless), associate editor, America Media
- Judith Sudilovsky (@jsudireports), freelance correspondent, Catholic News Service and Our Sunday Visitor
This year’s application pool was an impressive, sizeable group of highly-qualified candidates of secular and Catholic journalists in English- and Spanish-language media. The diverse and experienced investigative journalists, video journalists and broadcasters who applied had high-stake interests in covering these issues.
The fellows were selected based on the quality of their coverage, impact as communicators, and their demonstrated motivation to report on the issues that affect the poor and marginalized around the world.
