Apply for 2019 ‘Bringing Home the World’ Fellowship Program in U.S.

Deadline: 15 January 2019

Applicants are invited to apply for the 2019 ‘Bringing Home the World’ fellowship program which is sponsored by the Scripps Howard Foundation and the Brooks and Joan Fortune Family Foundation.

The Bringing Home the World Fellowship sends U.S. minority journalists overseas to cover stories that resonate with their local communities. The aim of the program is to support diverse new voices and fresh perspectives on underreported global issues, and advance minority journalists’ careers.

The program is founded on the belief that if applicants change the storyteller then changes the story. Since the program began in 2011, fellows have produced hundreds of stories that have propelled their careers and enriched their audiences.

  • The fellowship has increased the diversity of voices reporting internationally, supporting 94 fellows in 49 countries.
  • One-third of participants have attributed their career advancement to the fellowship.
  • Nearly one-quarter of the reporters have won awards for their stories produced through the program.
  • Many fellows come from small- and medium-size news outlets, which often do not have the resources to send reporters overseas for stories that affect their communities.

Their hard-hitting reports have focused on such topics as human trafficking, women’s rights, displaced children, and environmental degradation. Fellows have uncovered abuses and corruption, as well as documented the extraordinary lives of ordinary people.

The program provides support for fellows to report in-country for up to two weeks, including costs for travel, lodging, and interpreters.  ICFJ brings the selected fellows to Washington, D.C., for a comprehensive orientation that includes story workshopping, safety training, multimedia storytelling, and advice on how to work with fixers/interpreters. They offer a mentor with knowledge of the country to be visited, who can connect fellows with sources on the ground.

Criteria

  • The fellowship is open to English-speaking minority journalists working at a U.S. news organization or as freelance journalists in the United States.
  • Fellows must complete their stories by a given date and publish or air them in U.S. media outlets as well as in ICFJ’s online compendium of fellowship stories. ICFJ also assists freelance fellows to place their stories in major news outlets.

Key Dates

  • February 28: Selected journalists are notified
  • April 4 – 5: Orientation in Washington, DC (all fellows are required to attend)
  • July 15: Last day to complete reporting trip
  • September 1: Deadline to publish or broadcast stories
