The Persephone Miel Fellowship for Crisis Reporting
January 18, 2011 /Photography News/ The Persephone Miel Fellowship for Crisis Reporting is intended to give non-native English speaking media professionals the opportunity to reach audiences beyond their home countries on critical under-reported issues. The fellowship, overseen by the Pulitzer Center in collaboration with Internews, is designed to help media professionals outside of the United States 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 or international distribution of their work.
Terms of travel grant: The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting will provide a travel grant of $7500 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 American media. Specific grant terms are negotiated during the application process based on the scope of proposed work and intended outcomes. Payment of first half of the grant is disbursed prior to travel, upon receipt of required materials, and the second half on submission of principal work for publication/broadcast.
The Center will also work with the fellowship recipients to distribute the work across multiple platforms in the US to reach the widest possible audience. Projects with multi-media components that combine print/photography and video are strongly encouraged.
Eligibility: The Persephone Miel fellowships are open to all journalists, writers, photographers, radio producers or filmmakers; staff journalists as well as free-lancers who are non-native English speaking media professionals seeking to report from their home country.
Deadline: February 1, 2011
