The Education Fund, in partnership with the Dow Jones News Fund, announced the Holden Fellowship in the summer of 2020. The pilot program is dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion by advancing early- and mid-career professionals in their work as editors and aspiring industry leaders. The fellowship recognizes the work of the late Rich Holden, who championed diversity in editing as the longtime managing director of the Dow Jones News Fund.

Each fellow will receive up to $3,000 to apply to course tuition, conference fees, travel, or other costs related to their continuing career development and skill-building.
