2011 Journalism Fellowships on Immigration

Applications are being accepted for a journalism fellowship program focusing on U.S. immigration issues. Fifteen professional fellowships will be awarded to journalists seeking to report on the complexities of immigration with clarity, depth and context.

The 2011 program, “Immigration in the Heartland,” will take place March 5-12 in Oklahoma and Texas. In addition to matters affecting the nation’s Heartland, the program will explore immigration issues being played out across the nation, including state legislation and labor, education and legal topics.

The deadline for receipt of applications is Nov. 30 and the journalists selected will be notified by Dec. 20.

The Institute for Justice and Journalism is conducting the Heartland fellowship program for a second year, in partnership with the University of Oklahoma’s Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication and its Institute for Research and Training. The Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation is the program’s funder.
