The GroundTruth Project launches migration fellowship [Worldwide]

Posted on Feb 11, 2020 in Specialized Topics

Videographers, photographers, writers, audio reporters and data journalists can apply for a fellowship to report on the global migration and resettlement.

The GroundTruth Project, with support from the MacArthur Foundation and the Henry Luce Foundation, has created the GroundTruth Global Migration, Refugees and Resettlement Reporting Fellowship.

The program will select a team of fellows working across key regions, telling narrative-driven, multimedia stories of migration driven by climate change, economic and social instability, war and famine.

Applicants must submit story proposals that examine how the global migration crisis is unfolding at the local level, and solutions-oriented stories that explore the different approaches and challenges to permanent resettlement of refugees.

Fellows will receive US$10,000. Journalists who have migrated or been refugees are particularly encouraged to apply.

The deadline is March 2.
