Interns attend a week of training led by journalists from Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE) at the University of Missouri May 29 – June 4. Interns refine skills like making Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, learning computer-assisted reporting and analyzing and cleaning data. Among them are six students selected by the Emma Bowen Foundation in partnership with the Institute for Nonprofit News through a grant supported by the Democracy Fund. Follow the residency program using #djnfdata19.
