Border Justice Fellowships

"Border Crossings: Policy, Practice and Politics"

Tucson, Arizona, and Sonora, Mexico

January 9-16, 2006

Application Deadline: Monday, November 14, 2005

Border Justice Fellowships will be awarded this fall to 10 journalists to support exemplary journalism about the policies, realities and politics of Mexican immigration to the United States.

USC Annenberg's Institute for Justice and Journalism invites applications from journalists working in a variety of media, ranging from those with extensive experience in reporting on U.S.-Mexico border issues and immigration to those who desire to develop expertise. We seek journalists committed to bringing depth and context to border-related stories on issues such as enforcement of immigration laws, border security, public policy development and bi-cultural relations.

Border Justice Fellows will attend Tucson-based conference sessions and field trips to take place January 9-16, 2006. Conference discussions with experts will be mixed with field activities on and around the Arizona-Mexico border and in the Mexican state of Sonora. Fellows and their editors will attend a follow-up conference in late spring 2006.
Each Fellow is expected to publish or broadcast an in-depth story or series by June 30, 2006. USC Annenberg's Institute for Justice and Journalism will provide a stipend of $2,500 upon completion of an approved project.
