The Marguerite Casey Foundation Fellowship Program on Poverty aims to increase the public?s and policymakers? understanding of poverty through journalism.

Fellows and scholars selected will write at least one in-depth story or a short series from the point of view of families living in poverty and illustrate how language, culture and race influence public attitudes and policy about poor people.
