The fellowship will support ethnic media and community media journalists based in Northern California to research and write at least one in-depth, reported story on energy or energy policy issues (e.g. the state's resource challenge; the role of energy efficiency and renewable energy; the water and energy nexus; the household economics of energy use). The story, or series, will be published or broadcast in the fellows' respective media outlets, and selected stories will be published on NAM's and SoundVision Productions' websites. Fellows will receive a $2000 stipend at the completion of the fellowship program.
