Call for Applications: Immigration Reporting Fellow in the D.C. Metro Area
The Fuller Project for International Reporting is offering a fellowship for reporting on women and immigration in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
The fellow or fellows who are selected will receive reporting grants of $1,000 – $6,000, depending on the scope of the proposed reporting project, and may submit a separate budget for reporting expenses.
Journalists who speak more than one language spoken in the D.C. metro area, who have experience reporting on immigration, and who are well-sourced in immigrant communities in the D.C. metro area, are highly encouraged to apply. Multimedia journalists and journalists reporting for Spanish-language news outlets are welcome to apply.
The Fuller Project will work with the immigration fellow(s) to conceptualize their story pitches, to broaden their expert source networks, and to place the story with local and national outlets. The fellow will also collaborate with a team of Fuller Project journalists with deep expertise on issues impacting women and their communities.
To apply, please email Alieza Durana at firstname.lastname@example.org with three clips and a one page proposal for the reporting that you’d do as a Immigration Reporting Fellow in the D.C. metro area. In the scope of the proposal, please include the story idea, whether the piece or series is investigative, explanatory, or solutions-oriented in nature, and why it’s important to cover the story now.
The Fuller Project is looking for stories that will break new ground uncovering injustices and/or complex issues immigrant communities face in the D.C. metro area that haven’t been explored by local or national media. Strong applications will grapple with both what and why this is happening. We’re interested in a range of issues related to immigration and women, which could include, but aren’t limited to: health, childcare, education, housing, legal issues, violence against women, reproductive justice, human services, and work.
Early applications may be submitted by May 1, 2019. After May 1, submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis until the fellowship is filled.
