Applications for the ‘Above the Fray’  fellowship are being accepted from now until July 1st.  A partnership between the John Alexander Project and NPR,  the fellowship will offer one promising journalist the opportunity to cover under-reported stories from a region lacking significant mainstream media attention. The selected individual will spend three months filing on-air and online stories for NPR.

Above the Fray is the keynote program of the John Alexander Project – named in memory of former ABC  News producer, John Alexander, who collapsed and died suddenly in 2007, while on assignment with Ted Koppel in China.
