Journalism fellowship on immigration open [Europe, US]

Journalism fellowship on immigration open [Europe, US]

Deadline: 

January 15, 2013

Journalists interested in immigration and integration issues can apply for a fellowship.

With the support of the Ford Foundation, the French-American Foundation is offering its 2013 Immigration Journalism Fellowship.

This program aims to provide media professionals with the financial means to produce objective and challenging material on one of the most heated and controversial contemporary issues. Fellows will be awarded up to US$10,000 for their work, to be completed over a four-to-six month period.

The fellowship is open to journalists with a minimum of three years of professional journalism experience and outstanding achievements in the field. Candidates should have the ability to work in English or French (the final work must be published in either language). When applying, candidates must have already secured a commitment from a European or United States media outlet to publish the work produced.

Journalists can apply individually, but teams of up to three journalists can also apply for a single fellowship and share the funds towards completing their project. Freelance journalists are welcome to apply.

The foundation will pay special attention to innovative and groundbreaking material. All types of stories will be considered--local, global, cultural and economic--as long as they comply with journalism ethics of fairness and responsibility.

The deadline is January 14.
