New America Media Stimulus Watch Fellowships for Ethnic Media Journalists

Application Due: October 1, 2009

New America Media, Fellowship Application, Aaron Glantz, Stimulus Editor Posted: Aug 10, 2009

New America Media is calling for applications from ethnic media reporters and freelance journalists for its 2009 Stimulus Watch Fellowship. The fellows will research a story or a series of their design, documenting and explaining the impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) on the ethnic community served by their publication. The Fellowship is underwritten by a grant from the Open Society Institute.

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

In addition, fellows will participate in a MANDATORY two-day politics and policy workshop hosted by New America Media and Investigative Reporters and Editors in Washington, D.C. November 12-13, where they will meet national policy-makers, leading investigative and business journalists, policy advocates, and researchers. NAM will disseminate stories produced by the fellows to ethnic and mainstream media partners and nonprofit collaborators through our news wire.

All stories must be edited and approved by NAMs Stimulus Editor before publication and projects must be completed by February 15, 2010.

Fellows will receive a $3,500 stipend in two increments ($1,000 at the Washington, D.C. workshop and $2,500 once the story or series has been published or aired). NAM will arrange all flights and hotel bookings for the Washington workshop, and fellows will be reimbursed for all qualifying travel expenses (i.e. cab fares and train/bus tickets).
