Carter Center (Atlanta, SUA) and Romanian Independent Journalism Center (CJI) announced the Romanian 2013-2014 edition of Rosalynn Carter Scholarships for journalism on matters related to mental health.
Two Romanian journalists will benefit of those scholarships that will allow them, for a year, to realize, as a team, a media project meant to explore and bring in public’s attention aspects related to mental health or mental diseases. Each of the 2 journalists will receive a financial support of Euro 2,500 to elaborate its selected project.
The scholarships are accessible for all journalists, no matter the media they work for (print, radio, TV or online), and also for free-lancers. The projects can include investigations, reportages, multi-media analysis that combines text and images (photo or video) and/or audio.
The candidates, that must submit just one application, must show interest towards mental health, solid journalistic abilities and a solid knowledge of English. The projects must answer well-defined and individualized problems, to describe methodology and needed instruments for implementing the proposed activities and to detail the way they will contribute to reduce discrimination and stigmatization of people suffering mental diseases
