The Immigration Journalism Fellowship in the USA for International Students
The Immigration Journalism Fellowship aims to provide financial support to journalists of all nationalities who work in a range of media (online, print, documentary, photography, and so on) to provide independent, responsible, and difficult migration and integration reporting.
The fellowship was open to experienced journalists from any country with an interest in immigration and integration issues. Journalists with at least three years of professional journalism experience, notable achievements in the field, and the ability to work in both English and French were sought by the French-American Foundation and its international jury (the final work must be published in either language).
Candidates must obtain a commitment from a European or American media source to publish their work before submitting it. Individual journalists could apply, however, teams of up to three journalists were also eligible for a single fellowship to help them finish their assignments. Journalists who work on a freelance basis are encouraged to apply.
