THE NEW York University (NYU) Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute is accepting applications for the 2019 Reporting Award.

The Institute welcomes applications from international journalists. However, the work must be in English and must be accepted for publication by a reputable media outlet with a wide circulation. The Institute will not fund proposals to report from locations with conflict that might imperil journalists, nor will it support projects deemed to have a high level of risk for the applicant.

The Reporting Award provides up to $12,500 for a significant work of journalism, in any medium, on an under-reported subject in the public interest. Over the last eight years, winners have covered Haitian earthquake victims; a shelter for homeless pregnant women; and membership disputes within Native American tribes. 2018 winners will be covering the rise of Hindu nationalism in India; North Korean refugees and defectors; and the views and actions of a new generation of Russian political activists.

The deadline for submitting applications is on February 9, 2019. Applicants may send in their entries through the Institute's official website.
