hyphen public interest journalism fellowship


Hey journalists! Our friends at Hyphen magazine recently announced the launch of their first-ever Public Interest Journalism Fellowship, seeking high-impact stories about Asian Americans with a focus on coverage of the pressing social issues of the day, such as immigration or the environment, and how they impact the American community. And they're looking for applicants with good story ideas. This is super cool! Here are some more details:
The Hyphen Public Interest Journalism Fellowship will foster high-impact stories about Asian Americans with a focus on coverage of the pressing social issues of the day, such as immigration or the environment.

Fellows who are selected will funded up to $3,500 each. Projects can be in any medium, and the fellowship is open to journalists in all media. Fellows will be selected based on the strength of the proposal and likelihood for successful reporting and completion. Hyphen publishes a print magazine, website and blog.

The fellowship will fill a need for ambitious journalism covering Asian American communities and issues. Fellows will be expected to report and produce stories that illuminate some aspect of the Asian American experience. Fellows will be supervised by Hyphen's editorial team.
This is a really cool initiative, and I'm excited to see what kind of work we'll get to see. Remember, projects can be in any platform (print, audio, visual, video). The deadline to apply is August 1. For further information, including eligibility requirements and how to apply, head over to the Hyphen website.
