Investigative reporting fellowships open USA, Japan

Journalists from the United States and Japan can apply for a fellowship.
The Abe Fellowship for Journalists, sponsored by the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) and the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership (CGP), is designed to encourage in-depth coverage of topics of pressing concern to the U.S. and Japan through individual short-term policy-related projects.
Applicants can submit proposals on one of three themes: traditional and non-traditional approaches to security and diplomacy; global and regional economic issues; or social and cultural issues.
The program provides support for six weeks in Japan or the U.S. The maximum stipend is US$25,600, which includes one round-trip air ticket, US$500 to prepare for overseas fieldwork and support for interpretation based on requests.
The application deadline is Sept. 15.
