Immigration Journalism Fellowships

The Immigration Journalism Fellowship aims to provide media professionals of all nationalities and working in all forms of media (web, print, documentary, photography, etc.) with the financial means to produce independent, responsible and challenging work on migration and integration. To that end, the French-American Foundation will award a new class of fellows in 2013 with up to $10,000 each for their work, to be completed over a 4-6 month period.

The Fellowship seeks to support meaningfulvisionary stories on under-reported topics with a strong social justice component and with the potential to advance public debate on the issue. The Foundation particularly seeks both creative content and format, and all types of stories will be considered (local, global, cultural, economic, etc.).

The Immigration Journalism Fellowship was created in 2011 with the generous support of the Ford Foundation and receives additional support from Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Florence Gould Foundation, Air France and the Fondation TF1.
