ICFJ fellowship for minority journalists open [US]

Posted on March 07, 2017

Deadline: 

March 20, 2017

Minority journalists can apply for a fellowship.

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) is accepting applications for its Bringing Home the World Fellowship, which helps U.S.-based minority journalists cover compelling yet underreported international stories, increasing the diversity of voices in global news.

The program aims to level the playing field and redress the inequality minority journalists often face by giving them the opportunity to report from overseas and advance their careers.

Fellows participate in an orientation in early June in Washington and depart for their reporting assignments between June and August.

The 2017 fellowship is sponsored by the Scripps Howard Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the Brooks and Joan Fortune Family Foundation.

The application deadline is March 20.
