Deadline approaching: Social justice reporting fellowship [US]
Journalists in the United States who are interested in reporting on global social justice issues can apply for a fellowship.
The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) announces the Social Justice Reporting for a Global America Program, sponsored by the Ford Foundation, which allows U.S.-based journalists to gain foreign reporting experience and an opportunity to cover important international social justice issues around the world.
Selected journalists attend a week-long orientation at ICFJ’s headquarters in Washington, in May 2013, where they will fine-tune their reporting projects and will gain new reporting skills to work overseas.
Following orientation, fellows will report in the field for up to two weeks. Upon returning to the United States, they will finish their stories and broadcast or publish them by Sept. 30.
The deadline has been extended to Feb. 8.
Applicants must present a project proposal in their application, detailing the reporting project they would be interested in pursuing.
