    The Above the Fray fellowship gives a promising journalist the opportunity to cover important but under-reported stories. One fellow will be selected to report from a region lacking significant mainstream media attention. The selected individual will spend three months filing on-air and online stories for National Public Radio (NPR) in the United States.

    Above the Fray fellowship is not about finding the most experienced candidate; it is about discovering the next generation of international journalists. The fellowship will support energetic, truth-seeking individuals who wish to cover under-reported regions, but who lack the means to do so.

    Applicants should have at least three but no more than five years’ professional experience. Candidates must submit a bio, two recommendations, two audio or video clips, three essays and a pitch to report from an otherwise under-reported region.

    Deadline for applications: July 1, 2012.
