Are you a journalist of color interested in features writing? Do you know someone who is?
The Society for Features Journalism is again sponsoring the Penny Bender Fuchs Diversity Fellowship Program for U.S. journalists of color in conjunction with its annual conference, which this year is in New Orleans.
Diversity Fellows will learn what’s happening in features departments nationwide while networking with outstanding journalists specializing in lifestyle, culture and entertainment coverage.
Fellowships cover SFJ conference registration, airfare within the U.S. and hotel. Fellows also will be reimbursed for expenses toward baggage and transportation.

PHOTO: A photo of yourself for the conference program and SFJ website.
