Just four weeks remain until the application deadline for one of ten $10,000 journalism fellowships that could provide one or more IFAJ members with a valuable opportunity to hone and showcase their skills, raising their profile with a landmark food and farming story.
Aimed at early and mid-career journalists, and open to print and audio journalists alike, the programme is overseen by well-known food journalist Michael Pollan, the John S and James L Knight Professor of Journalism at UC Berkeley. It presents an opportunity to report ambitious, long-form stories on issues ranging from practical application of agriculture at farm level, through food science and industry, to policy-making and global trade.
Although the Fellowship gives preference to US-focused stories, applications are open to international journalists as well as US residents. International stories with a strong US angle or connection will be considered.
