Fall 2010 Jefferson Fellowships for Journalists opened

Manila (15 May) -- The East-West Center is accepting applications for the Fall 2010 Jefferson Fellowships for Journalists, a three-week seminar and travel program for working print, broadcast and online journalists from the United States and Asia Pacific.

Applicants must have a minimum of five years of professional experience and the ability to communicate in English in a professional, multi-cultural environment. An "Employer?s Statement of Support" is a required part of the application.

Application deadline is Wednesday, June 16, 2010. Incomplete or late applicants will not be considered.

The theme for the Fall program is "The Road to Energy Security: Paved with Efficiencies, Renewable Technologies and Investment". The program will look specifically at two of the largest users of energy, the U.S. and China, and their efforts in addressing energy security. The program will take special care to look at the challenges and opportunities involved in improving energy efficiency and in developing renewable technologies. The program will also examine how each country seeks to promote public and private investment in the supplies of today?s fossil fuel sources as well as the clean technologies that will transform the energy system for the future.

Scheduled for October 23 to November 13, 2010, the program will include study tours in Palo Alto, CA ; Sacramento, CA ; Beijing, China ; and Shenyang, China.

The Jefferson Fellowships are supported by a grant from The Freeman Foundation. The grant funds economy class, roundtrip airfare to and from Honolulu, Hawaii as well as all program-related air transportation, lodging, ground transportation and meals for participating journalists. A modest per diem is also provided. Participants are responsible for all applicable visa fees and any additional visa-related expenses.
