The GroundTruth Project is now accepting entries for its reporting fellowship covering a critical moment for global migration and resettlement.

The fellowship is looking for story proposals that examine how the global migration crisis is unfolding at the local level and solutions-oriented stories that explore the different approaches and challenges to permanent resettlement of refugees, even as anti-refugee sentiment fuels public backlash.

The fellowship is open to videographers, photographers, writers, audio reporters and data journalists. It seeks proposals that integrate compelling human stories with attempted solutions relevant to those stories – whether they have been proven effective or not.

Experience covering migration or refugees is preferred, and journalists who have migrated or been refugees are particularly encouraged to apply. The fellowship is open to candidates from anywhere in the world and they may apply with a partner or partners. Each fellow will receive a total of $10,000, which will cover all travel expenses and a fee to the fellow.

GroundTruth plans to select a team of fellows working across key regions, telling narrative-driven, multimedia stories of migration shaped by climate change, economic and social instability, war and famine.

Applications close on March 2, 2020.
