Some basic information about yourself, your professional experience and a few examples of your work.

A journalistic autobiography: In 2,000 words or less tell us about how and why you became a journalist. What life experiences have contributed to your work? What values shape your journalism? What are your passions and interests outside of journalism?

Recommendation letters: Three letters from people who know you and your work and can address your ability to pursue your fellowship proposal. You’ll provide their contact information in your online application and they will submit the letters directly to our system.

What you’d like to focus on during a fellowship: Your focus must be within one of the five topic areas we’ve identified. (The topic areas and examples are outlined on the Become a Fellow page of our website). In this part of the application, we’ll ask you a few questions about what you want to focus on and why.
