Media Fellowship to the United States
Each year the United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney in association with the World Press Institute offers an exciting opportunity for an early to mid-career Australian journalist with five to fifteen years professional experience to take up a media fellowship in the United States later this year.
The program is open to journalists and photojournalists from newspapers, newsmagazines, wire services, radio, television and online news organisations.
Applicants must be available to travel for two months between August and October, be Australian citizens or have permanent residency in Australia.
The winner of the United States Studies Centre World Press Institute Media Fellowship joins a group of ten World Press Institute Fellows from around the world.
The fellowship program provides immersion into the governance, politics, business, media, journalistic ethics and culture of the United States through a demanding schedule of study, travel and interviews.
The program is based at the World Press Institute in Minneapolis-St Paul, Minnesota with trips to Washington DC, New York and other major US cities.
The award covers travel, accommodation and a per diem for meals.
For enquiries, please contact Nina Fudala at email@example.com or call 0409 321 918.
Applications for the 2013 Media Fellowship have closed.
