The Dat Winning Fellowship is a writing program for aspiring Asian/Pacific Islander American (APIA) writers interested in a career in sports writing. Over a period of six months, DW fellows will write seven stories, including one long-form story. Each fellow is assigned a mentor that is an established professional in the field to help with their stories throughout the program.

The program is run in partnership with the Asian American Writers Workshop, VICE Sports, and NBC Asian America.
