Prabha Dutt Fellowship programme for journalists

Prabha Dutt Fellowship

The Sanskriti Pratishthan invites applications for its annual Prabha Dutt Fellowship in Journalism from young women who wish to investigate and research on any topic of contemporary relevance.

The purpose of the fellowship is to encourage young mid career women journalists to develop their potential by pursuing meaningful projects without having to work under the pressures of short deadlines. The fellowship carries a grant of Rs one lakh including travel expenses. The work can be executed in Hindi, English or any regional language.

The Fellowship is only open to women print journalists who are Indian nationals in the age group of 25 to 40.

Fellows will be required to publish a stipulated number of articles in established publications. They may also work on a book or monograph for subsequent publication within the given time frame.

The duration of the Fellowship will be ten months. The grant of Rs one lakh will be given in two phases; the first instalment at the commencement of the award and the second after submission of the completed project. A progress report will be required after the first four months.

The applicant will have to sign an agreement with Sanskriti Pratishthan pertaining to a regular flow of work during the Fellowship period. The candidate should not be holding another Fellowship or working on any other project at the same time.

All candidates should mail their CV and a short synopsis of 250 – 300 words of their project proposal along with the names of two referees to fellowships . Clearly mention the title ‘Sanskriti-Prabha Dutt Fellowship’ in the subject line. E-mailed applications should be followed by a hard copy.

The last date for receipt of application is August 31, 2011.
