Dean of Journalism

Watchdog Writers Group

The Watchdog Writers Group is a groundbreaking fellowship program to support authors as they write in-depth print journalism projects, while also training future generations of investigative reporters. The Watchdog Writers Group will provide stipends to authors as they work on books that focus on vitally important social issues. Missouri School of Journalism students will have opportunities to work directly with the authors, providing them valuable hands-on experience in the techniques, methods and ethics of investigative journalism. These unique experiences will provide students with the training necessary to launch career opportunities in investigative and longform journalism – areas that are difficult to break into at the entry level. Support for this program is an investment in the watchdog role high-quality journalism plays in our democracy. Your gift will help fund the WWG’s ongoing operations, including fellowships for authors and support for budding investigative journalists.
