BuzzFeed Creates Michael Hastings Reporting Fellowship

In honor of Michael Hastingswho died in a car accident on June 18 — BuzzFeed has created the Michael Hastings National Security Fellowship. According to the site, whoever gets the fellowship will recieve a $100,000 stipend for one year of reporting in the example set by Hastings:

The Michael Hastings Fellowship is aimed at proven journalists with strong sources and major stories to their credit who are interested in focusing for a year on a single subject and producing a series of stories on that topic. Proposed topics may include American foreign and national security policy; federal or local counterterrorism policy; the U.S. military; whistle-blowers; government secrecy; federal law enforcement; the military-industrial complex; veterans; human rights in conflict zones; and other related topics.

The reporter will work with BuzzFeed editors, and report to Ben Smith, the site’s editor-in-chief. The person will pen as few as six pieces and as many as “dozens.” Each piece will appear on BuzzFeed.
