The Pulitzer Center is now accepting applications for the Persephone Miel Fellowship that is designed to support journalists from outside the U.S. and Western Europe who are pursuing ambitious reporting projects and aim to bring their work to a broader global audience. The Persephone Miel Fellowship is overseen by the Pulitzer Center and was launched in partnership with Internews, a media development nonprofit. The fellowship benefits journalists with limited access to other fellowships and those whose work is not routinely disseminated internationally. The fellowship is named in honor of Persephone Miel, the former senior advisor of Internews, who dedicated her life to advancing the work of journalists across the globe. Miel fellowships involve reporting from within the applicant’s native country—or following migrant communities from there to other locations—but the stories are placed in international outlets.

The Pulitzer Center also offers the fellow the opportunity to be mentored by a journalist from their global network of grantees. They work with fellowship recipients to distribute their work across international media outlets to reach the widest possible audience. Projects with multimedia components that combine print, photography, and video are strongly encouraged. If you intend to publish your project only in local outlets in your country.

They are looking for projects that explore systemic issues in the applicant’s native country and that provide an overarching thesis, rather than individual spot reports from the field.
