Journalists who work in the arts or media convergence can apply for a fellowship

 Journalists that work in themes related to the arts, cultural industry or convergence of the media can apply to one of the fellowships of the Clore Leadership Programme that aims to form future leaders.

The fellowship, which lasts seven months, includes a 3-month work placement, training courses, mentoring and coaching. Fellows will also attend a residential course in Kent, England from September 12 to 23, 2011.

Fellows must have at least five years experience and be able to demonstrate leadership and knowledge/experience in the cultural sector. Candidates from outside the UK can apply for the International Scholarships on the Clore Leadership Programme as well as for unfunded fellowships.

UK music and arts reporter Paul Cutts used the award to travel to the US in 2008-2009, where he spent five months editing a Native American newspaper for the Shoshone and Arapaho tribes in the Lower Rocky mountains of Wyoming.

There are a number of general and specialist fellowships available, of those, one is of particular interest to journalists and editors: “Sustainable Convergence of Media.”
