Apply now for TJA x Translash fellowships for the IRE conference

We're offering travel funding to support trans journalists who want to develop their skills in investigative and data reporting.

Are you a trans, nonbinary, or gender-expansive journalist looking to access journalism training opportunities? If so, apply to be a TJA x TransLash fellow to attend the Investigative Reporters & Editors conference in Anaheim, California, from June 20-23!

TransLash Media is funding several fellowships, and the TJA may also provide additional travel support for general fellowships. The conference is an opportunity to learn about working with public records, data reporting, and other crucial tools for high-impact accountability news.

TJA fellows will receive funding for:

  • IRE conference registration
  • Hotel room for all three conference nights
  • Travel support to attend the conference

The TJA is also organizing the Trans Coverage Track at the IRE conference, which includes investigations-focused panels on covering trans communities and the issues that face us. The fellowship is for attending the entire IRE conference; fellows are not required to attend the TJA's Trans Coverage Track, though of course we would love to see you there.

TJA will also host a TJA members meetup, for those attending the conference or just in the area — come say hi!

Apply now to be a TJA fellow for the IRE conference.

The application deadline is rolling, but for full consideration, apply by April 29!

We're still seeking sponsors for a TJA members meetup, the coverage track itself, and more. Learn more about sponsoring our event.

Announcing new supporters for TJA's trans coverage track

The TJA has received a rapid response grant of $5,000 from Borealis Philanthropy's Fund for Trans Generations. This rapid response grant supports the launch of our trans-focused track, supporting TJA members’ attendance at the conference and other organizational needs. A huge thanks to Borealis for its support.
A huge thanks to TransLash Media for becoming a bronze sponsor of the trans coverage track at IRE in June. Their support will send three trans, nonbinary, and gender-expansive journalists to receive skills and job training in investigative journalism techniques.
