We are looking for 20 top, young correspondents — 10 from America and 10 from Burma — to take part in an all-expenses-paid fellowship in Burma from June 10 to June 30. The 20 reporting fellows will form a team that will work together on a project we are tentatively titling, "Burma Telling Its Own Story."
The reporting fellows will fan out in five groups led by veteran correspondents, photographers and videographers. These groups of reporters will set out across the country looking for the important stories to tell and interesting people to profile as the country makes a dramatic transition to democracy. The work produced by the team will be published as a GlobalPost Special Report.
Applicants must have a bachelor's degree and a minimum of 2 years of journalism experience. They should also have a passion for international reporting and travel, and an interest in reporting in Burma.
Please send a CV, at least three examples of your work and a letter explaining why you feel uniquely qualified to take part in this fellowship and what you hope to accomplish if your application is successful. Please address the letters to GlobalPost co-founder and Executive Editor Charles M. Sennott. Please send all application materials to firstname.lastname@example.org.
