CRS Egan Fellowship Accepting 2017 Applications

For two decades, Catholic Relief Services’ (CRS) Egan Fellowship program has taken journalists to many exotic locales – from Rwanda to the Philippines to Guatemala – to increase understanding of world poverty and how to combat it. In 2017, the journey will be to one of the most complicated and least-understood cities on earth – Washington, DC. Journalists can apply for Catholic Relief Services’ Egan Journalism Fellowship until the deadline date of May 15, 2017. Winners will be announced July 1, 2017.

The fellowship is named after Eileen Egan, CRS' first professional staff layperson, who devoted four decades of her life to assisting refugees and helping the poor in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
