Recent graduates from five public universities can apply for a fellowship to join in a reporting journey across the United States.

The GroundTruth Project is seeking candidates for its new reporting fellowship “Crossing the divide.” 

Five selected journalists will take part in a three-month reporting trip from late August to mid-November 2017. The team will travel across the country from Massachusetts, through Kentucky, along the Mississippi River to Minnesota and on to Montana and then the northern coast of California.

The fellows will work closely together to produce a multimedia body of work about the deep social and economic issues that divide the country, and how individuals and communities are “crossing the divide.” 

Each fellow will receive a stipend of US$8,400 as well as local travel, group meals and accommodations.

Candidates must be graduates of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst; Western Kentucky University; the University of Minnesota; the University of Montana; or the University of California, Berkeley. 

The deadline has been extended to May 7.
