Persephone Miel Fellowship 2018 - Developing Countries
The fellowship, overseen by the Pulitzer Center in collaboration with Internews, is designed to help journalists from the developing world do the kind of reporting they’ve always wanted to do and enable them to bring their work to a broader international audience. The fellowship will benefit those with limited access to other fellowships and those whose work is not routinely disseminated internationally. Miel fellowships involve reporting from within the applicant’s native country—or following migrant communities from there to other locations.

The
Pulitzer Center in collaboration with Internews, has opened calls for
2018 Persephone Miel Fellowship for journalists  from the developing
world.

Application Deadline: 1st March 2018

Eligible Countries: Developing Countries

Type: Fellowship (Professional)

Eligibility: 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. 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.

Selection: The
fellowship recipient will be selected by the Pulitzer Center in
consultation with Internews. Selection will be based on the strength of
the proposed topic and the strength of the applicant’s work as
demonstrated in their work samples. We are looking for projects that
explore systemic issues in the applicant’s native country and that
provide an overarching thesis, rather than individual spot-reports from
the field.

Number of Awards: Not specified

Value of Award: 

  1. The
    Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting will provide a travel grant of
    $5000 for a reporting project on topics and regions of global
    importance, with an emphasis on issues that have gone unreported or
    under-reported in the mainstream media. Specific grant terms are
    negotiated during the application process based on the scope of proposed
    work and intended outcomes. Payment of the first half of the grant is
    disbursed prior to travel, upon receipt of required materials, and the
    second half on submission of the principal work for
    publication/broadcast.
  2. The Pulitzer Center will also offer $2500
    to cover travel expenses associated with travel to Washington, D.C., to
    meet with Pulitzer Center staff and journalists and take part in a
    2-day workshop. Depending on the specific needs of the fellow, this may
    occur prior or after the reporting takes place.
  3. The Center works
    with fellowship recipients to distribute their work across multiple
    platforms in the U.S. to reach the widest possible audience. Projects
    with multimedia components that combine print, photography and video are
    strongly encouraged.
