Seattle University fellowships seeking journalists interested in family homelessness

The Seattle University Center for Strategic Communications is offering four fellowships to support original journalism on family homelessness in the state of Washington to encourage more and better reporting about family homelessness to foster greater public understand of its causes and cures.

Each of the four fellowships, which are made possible by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, provides $15,000 to support in-depth reporting during the spring of 2010 on any aspect of family homelessness in Washington. Projects may be in any medium. Fellows will also attend seminars on family homelessness.

Independent and freelance journalists are eligible to apply as well as those employed full-time. Deadline for applications is March 5. For more information, go to the fellowship’s Web site.
