DEADLINE for Applications: Dec. 16, 2019
Applications are now being accepted from working journalists, editors and columnists to participate in the 15th annual John Jay/Harry Frank Guggenheim Symposium on Crime in America on February 20-Feb 21, 2020 at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City.
The 2020 Symposium, sponsored by the Center on Media, Crime and Justice (CMCJ) at John Jay College, will introduce journalists to the key players, best practices, and innovative ideas in the growing movement to “reimagine” U.S. corrections, from our overcrowded prisons and jails to our flawed community supervision system. While prison reform is the main focus of next year’s conference, journalists interested in other justice areas will also be considered for the awards, which provide all-expense-paid travel and accommodation in New York City, post-conference research assistance, and access to the CMCJ’s exclusive network of sources.
More than 1,500 reporters and editors have participated since 2005 in our series of competitive fellowships, designed to brief print, online and broadcast journalists on emerging areas of criminal justice. Fellows are selected on the basis of applications that demonstrate how their work in progress or a proposed project will benefit from their participation in the symposium. The Fellowships are granted in two areas: general and analytical writing, and entrepreneurial/investigative reporting.

Fellowships will be announced in January 2020.
