Open Internet Reporting Fellowships

DEADLINE APPROACHING: April 2, 2010, 5 PM PDT

What is net neutrality? What is broadband access and adoption? Why should your audiences care about these issues? Here are three reasons why:

Do they make international phone calls using the Internet? Do they purchase consumer goods online? Do they search for information, jobs or register for schools online?

Each fellow will submit a proposal outlining an in-depth or investigative story or series of stories she or he intends to pursue, as well as a signed agreement by his or her publisher/producer to run the story or stories in their ethnic/community media outlet.

Fellows will receive assistance as needed with research, reporting and producing their stories. NAM will disseminate stories produced by the fellows to ethnic and mainstream media partners and nonprofit collaborators through NAM’s news wire. The G.W. Williams Center will also distribute the stories through independent media as well as its nonprofit partners.

All stories must be edited and approved by project editors before publication/broadcast and must be completed by June 30, 2010.

Fellows will receive a $500 stipend once the story or series has been published or aired. For more information contact Linda Jue, director and executive editor, G.W. Williams Center for Independent Journalism: 415/321-1733 or nvijdirector@gmail.com
