Writers, print and broadcast journalists, bloggers and filmmakers who want to report about criminal justice issues can apply for a fellowship.

The Soros Justice Fellowships, an initiative of the Open Society Foundations, help media professionals complete in-depth research on the U.S. criminal justice system.

Proposals should relate to one or more of the funds' goals, including reducing mass incarceration, challenging extreme punishment and promoting justice system accountability.

The fellowship lasts 12 months, and fellows are expected to work full time on their projects. The award varies from US$58,000 to US$80,000. Projects can begin between July and November 2019.

The deadline is Oct. 22.
