New America Media Announce the 2015 Equal Voice
Journalism Fellowship and Scholarship
Funded by the Marguerite Casey Foundation, this offers a new opportunity for emerging and established journalists from ethnic and mainstream media who cover issues on poverty.
Journalists can apply for an Equal Voice Journalism Fellowship and write at least one in-depth story or a series of stories that illustrate how language, culture and race influence public attitudes and policy about the poor.
Selected journalists will receive a stipend of $2,250, plus up to $1,000 in travel reimbursement. College-enrolled student journalists may also apply for the Equal Voice Scholarship, which offers $500 and up to $800 for travel.
Now think about the best medium in which to tell your story: video, audio, photography, text/print, graphics — or multimedia. Find an outlet that will agree to publish/distribute your story.
Applicants will need:
1. An essay articulating your project/idea
2. Resume/List of positions, accomplishments and awards
3. Letter of commitment from a publisher/editor or support letter from campus media
4. A letter of recommendation
5. Permanent links to work samples/recent content you have produced
Deadline to submit your application is June 7th. No applications submitted after June 13, 2015, will be considered. Click here to access the application form.
