Fellows are expected to explore their projects through research, observation, analysis and interviews, and relate their findings using one or a combination of storytelling tools and media, which may include text, photography, video, audio, graphic illustrations, etc.
Candidates with previous storytelling experience will be most competitive for this fellowship.
