The Los Angeles-based ECMC Foundation is accepting proposals from organizations or institutions interested in developing and managing a program to help a diverse cohort of journalists expand their awareness about postsecondary career and technical education. This competitive grant process will lead to the identification of one organization selected to receive funding.
Proposed concepts should include a plan to recruit and select program participants, offer innovative programming to build a community of practice among participants, and provide ongoing support for journalists seeking to advance in their career and/or refine their skills. The ideal program will engage participants throughout their involvement, allow for the exchange of ideas, and offer mentorship opportunities.
To be considered for this opportunity, interested organizations must submit a Letter of Inquiry to the ECMC Foundation via the online portal no later than 5:00 PM (PT) on March 20, 2019.
Final notifications will be issued by April 1, 2019. The organization selected for the grant opportunity will be asked to submit a full proposal (including a more concrete action plan and budget) to the foundation by April 29, 2019.
For complete guidelines, eligibility and selection criteria, and helpful guidance with respect to the LOI, see the ECMC Foundation website.
