GFF and ABC News, working with the George Polk Awards Committee, have established a pilot program for international investigative reporting, the Galloway Reporting Fellowship.
The goal of the Fellowship is to identify and train talented international journalists to conduct important investigations in regions that are newsworthy but not adequately covered.
The program offers foreign journalists a unique opportunity to broaden their journalism experience by working with a leading television newsroom. Reporting will focus on important stories from regions that are often ignored. The goal is to give training and invaluable experience to foreign journalists to improve the quality of international news reporting.
The Galloway Family Foundation provides grants for international human rights reporting to the GlobalPost. The GlobalPost helps to fill the void in world news coverage by US news organizations. With a network of journalists around the world living and working in the countries they cover, The GlobalPost produces reports, video and photography that give a ground-level view on international stories.
The George Polk Awards
The Galloway Family Foundation is proud to work with The George Polk Awards. The Polk Awards, established by Long Island University, are among the most prestigious honors in American journalism. They are conferred annually to honor special achievement in the field of reportage. The Polk Awards sits on the Galloway Family Foundation fellowship’s selection committee.
Galloway International Congressional Fellowship
The GFF believes that a void currently exists in the interaction between government practitioners and individuals working in academic and non-governmental organizations. To rectify this problem, the GFF has established the Galloway International Congressional Fellowship (GICF). The Fellowship offers professionals opportunities to work directly in Congress with Senators and Foreign Relations Committee staff on a variety of major foreign-policy issues. The Fellow will provide Committee members with his or her expertise on foreign-policy issues facing the U.S., while the Committee members give the Fellow a hands-on, in-depth education in setting and administering foreign policy.
The current GICF application round closes at 5PM ET on August 19, 2016. More information on GICF and application instructions can be found at the following link: How to Apply
