Deadline: 22 October | The Soros Justice Fellowships fund outstanding individuals to undertake projects that advance reform, spur debate, and catalyse change on a range of issues facing the U.S. criminal justice system.

The fellowships are part of a larger effort within the Open Society Foundations to reduce the destructive impact of current criminal justice policies on the lives of individuals, families, and communities in the United States by challenging the over-reliance on incarceration and ensuring a fair and accountable system of justice.

Fellows can receive funding through three categories: advocacy fellowships, media fellowships, and youth activist fellowships.

All projects must relate to the following U.S. criminal justice reform goals: reducing the number of people who are incarcerated or under correctional control, challenging extreme punishment, and promoting fairness and accountability in our systems of justice.
