Society of Professional Journalists Offers Two Fellowships

Got fellowships? The Society of Professional Journalists has two of them!

According to their press release, the Eugene C. Pulliam Fellowship for Editorial Writing doles out $75,000 to a writer to broaden his or her horizons and knowledge of the world. As for the cash itself, apparently it may be used for travel costs, researching topics or the cost of studying.

The other award, the Eugene S. Pulliam First Amendment Award, is granted to someone who has fought to preserve one or more rights guaranteed by the First Amendment. And it’s not limited to just one person — an individual, group of individuals or organizations may receive the award of $10,000 and an engraved crystal.

The deadline for both awards applications is June 22.
