Am I eligible to apply for a fellowship?
Applicants must have at least three years of experience as a journalist or working directly in journalism. Previous fellows have included audio journalists, documentary journalists, photojournalists, producers, reporters, and related roles. Blogging, academic writing, and public relations do not count toward journalism experience. Experience in mental health is not required.
Applicants must submit a full fellowship application and be available to attend all-day meetings at The Carter Center in September at the beginning and end of the fellowship year.
Applicants must be citizens or residents of the United States. Citizens or legal residents of countries in Latin America, Qatar or United Arab Emirates are eligible to apply, but the application process is different. View application procedures for international applicants.
