Applicants must have at least three years of professional experience in print or electronic journalism, submit an application packet (packet found online), and attend orientation and presentation meetings in September at the beginning and end of the Fellowship year. Fellows will not be required to leave their current employment. Awards will be announced July 10, 2009.
