The nine-month, part-time fellowship comes with a $10,000 stipend. Through substantial contribution to our print magazine and website, as well as a presence in other media outlets throughout the country, our fellows will conduct new research and in-depth reportage on the issues at the forefront of urban change. In addition to diversifying and expanding the editorial content of our publications, our primary goal is to have a long-term, positive impact on the cities and urban communities covered. Fellows are expected to write at least two, 2,500-word feature stories for our print magazine, as well as several web features and blog posts each month. Deadline September 15, 2008.
