The 12-month residential AP-NORC Fellowship will enable Sedensky to spend the next year in Chicago working with world-class research scientists, economists and others to develop the economic and analytical skills needed to produce research-based enterprise journalism focused on a rapidly aging American workforce.

Sedensky, who has been an AP reporter for the past 10 years, was awarded the fellowship after a national competition open to mid-career journalists currently employed by the AP or by any Associated Press Media Editors (APME) news organization.
