The goal of the Fellowships is to improve the quality of news and information reaching the public through the news media: print, broadcast and cyberspace. The fellowships give outstanding journalists the chance to broaden and deepen their outstanding of a changing world, while working on very real journalism issues.
"The program will focus on innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership to foster high quality journalism — including an emphasis on developing and strengthening press freedoms around the world — during this time of profound transformation. Fellows need a broader range of experience, media and skills, both in the U.S. and abroad, than in the past. This could include journalistic entrepreneurs, as well as journalists who are a bit less experienced – or more experienced – than the average Fellow."
Applications can be submitted by qualified international journalists especially those who can have direct impact on the development of a free press and flow of information in their countries.
