Exciting fellowship opportunity in Russia for journalists at beginning of their careers

Interesting opportunity for young Rusofiles (Is that a word?) Details below.

The US-Russia Social Expertise Exchange (SEE – part of the Eurasia Foundation) is offering six one-month fellowships to young journalists – 3 from the US and 3 from Russia – to take place between January and April 2014.

The “emerging professional” fellows will be part of an ambitious project to link two cities – one in Russia and one in the US – through a multi-media online platform. The fellows – who need to have at least 3 years of reporting experience and to speak both English and Russian – will be hosted by media organizations in the receiving country and will be mentored by members of SEE’s Collaborative Media Working Group (of which I was one of the co-chairs this year).

This is a unique opportunity to be part of an exciting pilot while, at the same time, acquiring valuable journalism experience.

Time is of the essence – the deadline for applying is 9 AM Monday November 4 EST.

For further details about the project and the requirements for applicants have a look at the SEE website (under the "Collaborative Media" group): http://usrussiasocialexpertise.org/#
