New journalism fellowship on U.S.-Japan issues

The Abe Fellowship for Journalists "offers stipends for journalists interested in pursuing individual short-term policy-related projects on topics of pressing concern to the United States and Japan."

The fellowship provides support for six weeks in Japan or the United States. The term may be divided between the principal destination and another country. The stipend is up to $23,500, which includes one roundtrip air ticket, $500 to prepare for overseas fieldwork, and support for interpretation based on requests.

Applicants must have at least five years of journalism experience. The application deadline is Sept. 15.
