Ethnic Media Environmental Justice Fellowships Now Available

Thursday, March 05, 2009

The University of Southern California’s Institute for Justice and Journalism (IJJ) is taking applications for its 2009 MF-funded Fellowship in Environmental Justice. Aimed at increasing the depth, clarity and context of coverage of urban environmental issues, the program will include sessions in Los Angeles and Chicago and will feature field reporting trips, professional training workshops and interviews with experts. The Los Angeles session will last one week and begin April 30, 2009, and the Chicago session will take place in July, exact dates TBD. The program will select 10 experienced print, television, radio and online journalists from across the U.S. who are employed by ethnic media news organizations or independent journalists who regularly cover ethnic communities or racial justice issues. The editors or news directors of the Fellows will also take part in at least three days of the sessions in Los Angeles.
