    Education Reporting Fellowship for Immigrant and Ethnic Media
    Journalists in New York

    Deadline Extended


    Call for applications

    Feet in Two Worlds is offering a limited number of fellowships to
    immigrant and ethnic media journalists who want to improve their
    online reporting and social networking skills while covering education
    issues in New York City.

    Fellows will receive training in blogging and multimedia presentations
    (audio slide shows, videos, podcasts), as well as on social media
    sites such as Twitter and Facebook.  They will produce stories for the
    Feet in Two Worlds blog (news.feetintwoworlds.org) and for the news
    organization(s) for whom they normally report.  There will also be
    opportunities for a select group of fellows to produce radio stories
    for broadcast online and on the air.

    This three-month fellowship runs during the two final months of the
    current school year, April 15, 2011 to July 1, 2011.  There will be
    three workshops over this period the fellows are required to attend,
    in addition to submitting three stories with multimedia elements. In
    addition to media training, fellows will receive a $500 stipend and
    the opportunity to have their work featured on
    news.feetintwoworlds.org, Insideschools.org, and other online news
    sites.

    The fellowship is open to staff or freelance immigrant and
    first-generation immigrant reporters and editors who work in any
    language. The training will be conducted in English, and all reporting
    for Feet in Two Worlds and our partner organizations will be in
    English.  The training will focus mainly on work in the field,
    although there will also be a limited number of group workshops.

    Applications are due by 5 PM on Monday, March 28, 2011 and should
    include the following:

    Three story ideas for coverage of education issues in New York’s
    immigrant communities or directly affecting immigrants in New York
    City.
    Your resume.
    Samples of your work.
    The URL of the media outlet(s) for whom you report.
