Immigration news reporting fellowship

A Long Island-based organization focused on immigration issues is offering two blogging fellowships. The group, Long Island Wins, says it "encourages dialogue about immigration, while advocating for immigration solutions that work for all Long Island residents."

The fellowship will last for six months, and the fellow will receive a $2,500 stipend (or approximately $50 per blog post).

"The fellow, who will work closely with the online editor, will be expected to produce at least two 500- to 800-word posts per week, and devote approximately 12-15 hours per week to the posts," the ad states. "Aside from more topical news stories, the fellow will also develop at least one ongoing investigative story during his or her fellowship. Recent J-school graduates, journalists re-entering the workforce, and established bloggers are all encouraged to apply. Prospective fellows should be based on Long Island, or nearby, and have access to a car."
The deadline for applicants is May 15, 2010, and the fellowship will begin no later than June 1, 2010. E-mail a cover letter, resume, and three published news clips (or other relevant writing samples) to

New York
