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. 

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

Submissions for the Fellowship are now closed, and the Foundation will make an announcement when submissions for the next class of fellows reopen.
