NPR offers reporting fellowship [US]

Posted on May 5, 2020 in Multimedia Journalism

U.S.-based journalists can apply for a fellowship to conduct a reporting project abroad.

Sponsored by the John Alexander Project and NPR, the Above the Fray Fellowship is designed to give a promising journalist the opportunity to cover important underreported stories from abroad.

The selected individual will spend three months filing on-air and online stories for NPR.

Applicants should combine the depth of traditional journalists with the technical innovation of new media and have between three and five years of professional experience. 

The deadline to apply is July 1, 2021.

Note: The fellowship will not be held in 2020 and is scheduled to return in 2021.
