Persephone Miel Fellowship 2013: Apply Now
Apply now for the 2013 Persephone Miel Fellowship, which provides opportunities for journalists outside the U.S. to expand their reporting and reach new audiences. Overseen by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, in collaboration with Internews, the Fellowship honors Persephone Miel, a pioneering advocate of high-quality international reporting.
A former Senior Adviser at Internews, Persephone Miel worked to advance the work of international journalists and to ensure that their voices would be heard not only in one region but around the world. Support for the fellowship comes from friends of Persephone Miel and from all who seek to honor her legacy. The fellowship is designed to help media professionals outside the United States do the kind of reporting they've always wanted to do and enable them to bring their work to a broader audience. Learn more about Persephone and the Fellowship.
The fellowship is open to journalists and media professionals outside the U.S. who are seeking to report from their home country. It is designed to benefit those with limited access to other fellowships and those whose work is not routinely disseminated internationally. Women and journalists from developing countries are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants must be proficient in English. The application deadline is February 15, 2013.
2012 Fellow Anna Nemtsova wrote a story about the at least two million young and talented people from Siberia who have packed up and left their homes for the prosperous European part of the country in search of better lives.
See the announcement of the fellowship at the Internews ceremony in honor of Persephone in October 2010 and the announcement of the 2012 Persephone Miel Fellow, Anna Nemtsova. Her Pulitzer Center project, “Russia: On the Move,” explores new trends and migration patterns in the North Caucasus and the brain drain in Siberia.
