Soros Justice Media Fellowships for journalists at Open Society Foundations Location: New York DL: 12 October 12 2011




The Soros Justice Media Fellowships support writers, print and broadcast journalists, bloggers, filmmakers, and other individuals with distinct voices proposing to complete media projects for local, regional, and national markets that engage the public and spur debate on one or more of the Open Society Foundations' U.S. criminal justice priorities. The fellowships aim to mitigate the time, space, and market constraints that often discourage individuals from pursuing important but marginalized, controversial or unpopular issues in a comprehensive manner. Media fellowships are one year in duration, and fellows are expected to make their projects their full-time work during the term of the fellowship. Projects can begin in either the spring or fall of 2012.

Photography projects (production or distribution) are not eligible for funding. For information on support for this type of project, please see the Open Society Documentary Photography Project.

Note: Please be aware that the Soros Justice Fellowships Program is separate and distinct from the Open Society Fellowship, which supports individuals seeking innovative and unconventional approaches to fundamental open society challenges. While both programs share a common interest in open society issues generally, the Soros Justice Fellowships have an express focus on U.S. criminal justice issues.
