Reporting fellowship for Radio Journalists
Above the Fray, a fellowship in conjunction with NPR, is the keynote program of the John Alexander Project. The Above the Fray fellowship is designed to give a promising radio journalist the opportunity to cover important but under-reported stories from a location abroad. One fellow will be selected each year based on a winning proposal to report from a region lacking significant mainstream media attention. The selected individual will spend three months filing on-air and online stories for NPR.
Applicants should have 3-5 years of professional experience. Above all, the applicant must express sincere interest in innovative foreign reporting, a curiosity about global cultures and a demonstrated record of journalistic potential.
Application deadline: July 1, 2013
