International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) offers The 2nd International Reporting Fellowship Program for Minority Journalists. The fellowship offers journalists of color to gain foreign reporting experience and the skills they need to become future leaders in the field. This program aims to level the playing field, sending well-briefed journalists of color overseas to report on important issues that resonate in their communities.
Applicants must present a project proposal in their application, detailing the reporting project they would be interested in pursuing. For guidelines on drafting the project proposal, click here.
Selected journalists attend an orientation at ICFJ’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. Each fellow will also be paired with a mentor who is either a working or a former foreign correspondent. Following orientation, fellows will report in the field for up to 2 weeks. Upon returning to U.S., they will finish their stories and broadcast or publish them by 31 Aug 2012.
