The Goldschmidt Fellowships are funded by a grant from the Chicago-based Walter and Karla Goldschmidt Foundation and 2020 marks the 7th year of this program. Check out this year’s schedule.

The business journalists chosen as Goldschmidt Fellows attend the five-day SABEW Goldschmidt Data Immersion Workshop in Washington, D.C., which provides an interactive experience into how government creates and uses data. Fellows meet with national data experts from the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the Census Bureau, the USDA and more.

The yearly workshop is led by Marty Steffens, SABEW chair at the University of Missouri, and Kevin G. Hall, SABEW past president and chief economics correspondent and senior investigative reporter for McClatchy Washington Bureau.
