We’re pleased to announce three additions to the 2023-24 Times Fellowship class: J. Edward Moreno, Aaron Boxerman and Claire Fahy.
Edward, most recently a reporter at Bloomberg Law, will be our Carr Fellow in Business. Aaron, who has worked as a journalist in Jerusalem, will be our International fellow in London. And Claire, currently a news assistant on the Express desk at The Times, will join the program as a fellow on the Metro desk.
We are also delighted to share that Neelam Bohra will stay on in her role as a reporting fellow focused on disability issues, embedding with The Texas Tribune for a year. The embed will allow her to examine topics at the state and local level. The fellowship, which is philanthropically supported, is in partnership with the National Center on Disability and Journalism and Mass Communication at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University. The embed will take place in lieu of a disability fellow at The Times for 2023-24. We will recruit for the next disability fellow in the fall.
You can learn more about the new fellowship class here. Beginning next month, these up-and-coming journalists will spend a full year learning and working together in a program that forms a key part of The Times’s commitment to developing the industry’s next generation.
