Fellowship in Religious Communications

There is a new opportunity for young leaders committed to religious communication and journalism to advance their careers and grow their knowledge. Applications are now being accepted for the 2015-2016 Handa Fellows in Interreligious Communication.

The program provides a unique opportunity for growth, development, and connection for those interested in – or already working in – religious communication or journalism. Those selected to be Handa Fellows will receive a program orientation and organization-specific cohort formation experience. The program also includes webinars, an assigned mentor, scholarships to national conventions, and more.

The program is supported by the Religion Communicators Council, Religion Newswriters Association, and the International Shinto Foundation.

Applications are due Nov. 6, and Fellows will be announced Nov. 10. The program runs from November 2015 to October 2016.

Handa Fellows must be 18-35 years old and either 
*college students preparing for careers in religious communication or journalism or 
*professionals early in the same career path.

Anyone interested must be available for participation in the conventions of the Religion Communicators Council (New York City, March 31-Apil 2, 2016) and the Religion Newswriters Association (Silver Spring, Maryland, Sept. 22-25, 2016). Fellows will receive training and support during this period, including coverage of reasonable convention expenses (details are available online).
