SEJ is honored to be receiving generous gifts for its mentor program through the Elyssa Rosen Memorial Fund. SEJ will allocate these donations to mentoring activities for journalists, including a mentoring fellowship program that will underwrite travel costs for a mentor-mentee pair to meet up at SEJ’s 2014 Annual Conference in New Orleans, where they will gain valuable experience, strengthen their reporting, and build stronger relationships.
Elyssa Rosen's devoted fiancé, Matt Newberry, established the Fund in her memory.
Elyssa Rosen was a dedicated conservationist whom SEJ members and friends may remember meeting at the annual conference in Montana in 2010. She was working to establish marine reserves in the Southern Oceans of Antarctica when she passed away suddenly in a diving accident in the Tinderbox Marine Reserve off the coast of Tasmania, Australia, in October 2013.
