Journalists in the United States, Latin America, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates are encouraged to apply for this program.

The Carter Center organizes the Rosalynn Carter Fellowships for Mental Health Journalism, which aims to train reporters covering mental illness.

Eight U.S. candidates will be selected for the yearlong journalism fellowship starting in September, which includes a US$10,000 stipend, training and networking opportunities. Selected international journalists are awarded a comparable stipend. 

Fellows should have at least three years of experience in print or electronic journalism (writing, reporting, editing, producing, filmmaking) and be citizens or legal residents of the United States, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, or any country in Latin America.

Applicants must provide a resume, objectives for the fellowship and project description, samples of professional work and three letters of recommendation.

The deadline is April 7. Recommendation letters must be submitted by April 14.
