Aging in the 21st Century: Apply for Ethnic Media Fellowships


Thanks to The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s generous support, AHCJ will be able to grant a number of professional fellowships for the Oct. 16 & 17 workshop in Miami.

Fellowships are open to full-time journalists who work at one of the nation’s ethnic media outlets–print, broadcast or online. Ethnic media is defined here as serving a predominantly minority or ethnic audience.
