The Pulitzer Center in partnership with Internews, a media development nonprofit invites applications for its 2021 Persephone Miel Fellowship to support journalists from outside the U.S. and Western Europe who are pursuing ambitious reporting projects and enable them to bring their work to a broader global audience.
The fellowship benefits journalists with limited access to other fellowships and those whose work is not routinely disseminated internationally.
The fellowship is named in honor of Persephone Miel, the former senior advisor of Internews, who dedicated her life to advancing the work of journalists across the globe. Miel fellowships involve reporting from within the applicant’s native country—or following migrant communities from there to other locations.
Utilize This Offer
The Persephone Miel Fellowships are open to all journalists, writers, photographers, radio producers or filmmakers, staff journalists, as well as freelancers and media professionals outside the U.S. and Western Europe who are seeking to report from their home country.
Female journalists and journalists from developing countries are strongly encouraged to apply.
Applicants must be proficient in English.
The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting will provide a grant of USD$5,000 for a reporting project on topics and regions of global importance, with an emphasis on issues that have gone unreported or underreported in the mainstream media.
The Pulitzer Center also offers the fellow the opportunity to be mentored by a journalist from global network of grantees.
Deadline: April 23, 2021.
