Legal reporting fellowship for freelancers

Carnegie/Newhouse School Legal Reporting Fellowships provide up to $3,000 each, plus other benefits, for freelance journalists examining some aspect of the American legal system.

"Apply if you: Are a U.S.-based journalist, working in any medium, whose primary source of income is freelancing," the fellowship's website says. "Are reporting on, or proposing, a project of a nonpartisan nature that focuses on law, lawyers, judges, or the justice system -- locally, regionally, or nationally. Can document legitimate out-of-pocket expenses, such as travel or records acquisition, that have not been reimbursed by another party. Can assign productive research or reporting tasks to a dedicated, talented Newhouse journalism student whom we'll pay to help you throughout the 2008-09 academic year."

The deadline is September 8.
