The Pulitzer Center is pleased to announce that the call for proposals for the 2013 Persephone Miel Fellowship is now open.
A former Senior Adviser at Internews, Persephone Miel worked to advance the work of international journalists and to ensure that their voices would be heard not only in one region but around the world. Support for the fellowship comes from friends of Persephone Miel and from all who seek to honor her legacy. The fellowship, overseen by the Pulitzer Center in collaboration with Internews, is designed to help media professionals outside the United States do the kind of reporting they've always wanted to do and enable them to bring their work to a broader audience.
The fellowship is open to journalists and media professionals outside the U.S. who are seeking to report from their home country. It is designed to benefit those with limited access to other fellowships and those whose work is not routinely disseminated internationally. Women and journalists from developing countries are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants must be proficient in English. The application deadline is February 15, 2013.
See the announcement of the fellowship at the Internews ceremony in honor of Persephone in October 2010 and the announcement of the 2012 Persephone Miel Fellow, Anna Nemtsova. Her Pulitzer Center project, "Russia: On the Move," explores new trends and migration patterns in the North Caucasus and the brain drain in Siberia.
