Fellowship Opportunities


Promising journalists in the NAM ethnic media network are eligible for fellowships that provide funding for stories in key issues. The reporting that has come out of past NAM fellowships has told important stories sourced from ethnic communities, from the impact of AIDS on women in Indian society and how the nail salon business has allowed Vietnamese immigrants to climb up the socio-economic ladder.
