Yet, with media outlets facing drastic job and budget cuts, it has become more challenging for journalists to undertake in-depth or investigative reporting projects on immigration.With the generous support of the Ford Foundation, the French-American Foundation is launching the Immigration Journalism Fellowship. This Fellowship aims to provide media professionals with the financial means to produce objective and challenging material on one of the most heated and controversial contemporary issues. The French American Foundation will pay special attention to innovative and groundbreaking material. We are looking for visionary, uncovered and meaningful stories with the potential to advance public debate. Both creative content and format will draw our particular attention. All types of stories will be considered (local, global, cultural, economic, etc.), as long as they comply with journalism ethics of fairness and responsibility. At the end of the fellowship, selected fellows will be invited to attend a closing ceremony in New York.EligibilityThe French-American Foundation and its Media Advisory Committee will consider media professionals:from all types of media (print, web, broadcast, documentary, etc.);with a minimum of three years of professionalism journalism experience and outstanding achievements in the field;of all nationalities (note that the work produced as part of the fellowship must be published in the United States or in Europe);with the ability to work  in either English or French (the final work must be published in English or French);with a prior commitment from a media organization to publish the work produced.FellowshipThe French-American Foundation will award fellows up to $10,000 for their work, to be completed over a 4-6 month period.
