The Immigration Journalism Fellowship

Please note that the Immigration Journalism Fellowship is not accepting applications for the 2019-2020 cycle.

The Immigration Journalism Fellowship

The Immigration Journalism Fellowship aimed to provide journalists 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 was available to experienced journalists of any nationality and with an interest in questions of immigration and integration. The French-American Foundation and its international jury looked for journalists with a minimum of three years of professional journalism experience, with outstanding achievements in the field and the ability to work in English or French (the final work must be published in either language).

When applying, candidates must have already secured a commitment from a European or US media outlet to publish the produced work. Journalists applied individually, but teams of up to three journalists were also eligible for a single fellowship to share the funds toward completing their project. Freelance journalists are welcome to apply.
