DEADLINE: Jefferson Fellowships for Journalists
Founded by the East-West Center in 1967, the Jefferson Fellowships promote better public understanding of the United States and Asia and Pacific through one week of dialogue with professional colleagues and experts at the East-West Center in Hawaii, followed by a two-week study tour to cities in Asia or the U.S. Open to mid- and senior-level print, broadcast, and online journalists from the U.S. and Asia Pacific.
