The Fellowship Program is open to full-time editorial employees of newspapers, magazines and broadcast news organisations and freelance journalists.
Applicants must have at least four years' experience. Though some attempt is made to achieve a diversity of backgrounds, the affiliation of applicants is not a factor in the selection process.
