USC Annenberg`s Institute for Justice and Journalism is accepting applications from ethnic media journalists eager to learn and cover urban environmental justice issues. The program will be held in Los Angeles and Chicago but the lessons learned will be applicable to any U.S. urban area.
The 10 journalists selected as Fellows will produce an in-depth story or a series of shorter stories for print, broadcast or online on environmental justice. A $1,000 stipend will be paid to each Fellow upon successful completion of the fellowship project. All program expenses are covered by IJJ from a grant from the McCormick Foundation.
Applicants must be employed by ethnic media news organizations or be independent journalists who regularly cover ethnic communities in the U.S. or racial justice issues.
The fellowship application and materials must be received by Monday, March 23.
