Deadline: 01 March 2018
Open to: journalists, writers, photographers, radio producers or filmmakers, staff journalists as well as freelancers and media professionals
Benefits: USD 5000 for a reporting project and USD 2500 for travel expenses
Applications are now accepted for the 2018 Persephone Miel Fellowship. The fellowship, overseen by the Pulitzer Center in collaboration with Internews, is designed to help journalists from the developing world do the kind of reporting they’ve always wanted to do and enable them to bring their work to a broader international audience.
The fellowship will benefit those with limited access to other fellowships and those whose work is not routinely disseminated internationally. Miel fellowships involve reporting from within the applicant’s native country—or following migrant communities from there to other locations.
The Persephone Miel Fellowship is a unique opportunity for journalists outside of the United States and Western Europe.
- The Persephone Miel fellowships are open to all journalists, writers, photographers, radio producers or filmmakers, staff journalists as well as freelancers and media professionals outside the U.S. who are seeking to report from their home country;
- Female journalists and journalists from developing countries are strongly encouraged to apply;
- Projects with multimedia components that combine print, photography, and video are strongly encouraged;
- Applicants must be proficient in English.
The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting will provide a travel grant of USD 5000 for a reporting project on topics and regions of global importance, with an emphasis on issues that have gone unreported or under-reported in the mainstream media. Specific grant terms are negotiated during the application process based on the scope of proposed work and intended outcomes.
The Pulitzer Center will also offer USD 2500 to cover travel expenses associated with travel to Washington, D.C., to meet with Pulitzer Center staff and journalists and take part in a 2-day workshop. Depending on the specific needs of the fellow, this may occur prior or after the reporting takes place.
