NEW YORK — GlobalPost is proud to announce the second annual 'GroundTruth fellowship for reporting in the Middle East' and we are now accepting applications for proposals for the $10,000 grant.
The fellowship was officially announced last month at the Overseas Press Club Foundation luncheon and we are setting a deadline of April 15 for all proposals. We plan to announce the winner on May 1.
The GroundTruth fellowship will be awarded to a correspondent working on the ground in the Middle East with a minimum of three years of experience.
We are looking for a talented journalist who is early in his/her career and who presents the most worthy project idea for how to cover the aftermath of events in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Bahrain, Syria and elsewhere that have unfolded over the last three years and come to be known as the Arab Spring, or the Arab Awakening.
