NAM Launches 2012 Women Immigrants Fellowship – Apply Now
Happy New Year! This week New America Media is launching its call for applications for its 2012 Immigration Fellowship, “Women on the Move,” a national fellowship program open to both ethnic media and mainstream media reporters, including bloggers and online journalists, to report on women immigrants.
Women are now the majority of immigrants, and in many ways immigration can be seen as a feminist issue. With funding support from The Atlantic Philanthropies, New America Media is offering a fellowship program for journalists across the country to cover immigrant women’s issues and report on the intersection of immigration and gender.
The fellowship includes a two-day training in Washington, D.C., on April 19-20, 2012; and the publication of an in-depth, substantive story (or series) focusing on the challenges and/or triumphs of immigrant women in the United States, before August 30, 2012.
Fellows will receive a $2,000 stipend following publication of the story in their media outlet and on New America Media.
